Assi is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after his roommate, Nicolas Renier, says Assi pulled a pistol and threatened to shoot him on November 10th during a disagreement in their garage. Renier says the two were in a “slight disagreement” over money, and he asked Assi to return his $1,400 rent payment, but he would only agree to return $700. Assi went inside the house as if to retrieve the money but returned with a pistol and pointed it directly at Renier, threatening to shoot him. Police arrived and Assi admitted to the felony aggravated assault.
