Retired police captain Mark Anthony Aguirre, 63, was arrested Tuesday and charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.

According to Aguirre, he had been conducting surveillance on the victim for four days under a theory the victim, a air conditioner repairman, was the mastermind of a giant fraud, and there were 750,000 fraudulent ballots in a truck he was driving.

Aguirre ran his SUV into the back of the truck to get the technician to stop and get out. When the technician got out of the truck, Aguirre, pointed a handgun at the man, forced him to the ground and put his knee on the man’s back – an image captured on the body-worn camera of a police officer.

Aguirre never told police that he had been paid a total of $266,400 by the Houston-based Liberty Center for God and Country, with $211,400 of that amount being deposited into his account the day after the incident.
