Man charged with assault after two couples argue over Walmart parking spot

34-year-old Matthew Worsham was charged with two counts of aggravated assault after a fight escalated between two couples over a parking spot at the Walmart on Madison Street.

On March 7th, Officer Nicolas Johnson was dispatched to the Walmart located at 2315 Madison Street. According to the affidavit, the victims told officers that while waiting for a parking spot another vehicle pulled through and taken it. The female victim stated she got out of her truck and approached the occupants of the other vehicle asking them to back into the adjacent spot because they had waited for that one. She then said that Angela Carlton and Matthew Worsham began to shout and swear at her. A male who was with the female victim also exited the truck and told Carlton and Worsham not to speak to her like that, which prompted Worsham to exit the vehicle to confront the situation.

According to the report, after an amount of vocal conflict between the couples, Worsham drew a pistol and pointed it at the male victim. Both victims retreated back to the truck and contacted authorities. When Worsham was frisked the weapon was recovered and the security footage partially corroborated the account.

When Matthew Worsham was questioned at the Montgomery County Jail, he admitted that he felt threatened during the argument and drew his firearm, which he claims he pointed at the ground in an attempt to get the male victim to leave him alone.

Matthew Worsham was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault. His bond was set at $20,000.
