A Brownwood man is free on $35,000 bond after he was arrested following a dispute in which a shot was fired into a vehicle.
    William Nickerson, 32, was arrested Wednesday on a warrant for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, Brown County Jail records state.
    Nickerson and the other person in the May 23 dispute are related, police said earlier.
    According to a complaint filed by Brownwood police detective Doug Hurt:
     Witnesses told police a man was upset with Nickerson and drove to Nickerson’s apartment in the 1600 block of Good Shepherd to confront him. Witnesses saw Nickerson enter his apartment and come back out holding a .40 caliber pistol.
    The other man got into his sport utility vehicle and began to drive away, and Nickerson allegedly fired a shot through the SUV’s driver’s side front door, breaking the window.
    No one was present when officers initially responded, and police obtained a warrant for Nickerson’s arrest.
    In an unrelated incident, a 17-year-old Brownwood teen remained jailed Thursday, and is 18-year-old companion is free on bail after they were arrested earlier this week on charges of burglary of a vehicle and burglary of a building.
    According to a police report:
    Police were dispatched at 11:19 p.m. to the 1800 block of 16th on a report of “two skinny male subjects” — including one with a backpack — looking in vehicles with a flashlight and attempting to open doors.
    Police located the two suspects, identified as Patrick Gordon, 18, and Andrew McCurdy, 17, and received consent to look in the backpack. Police located items believed to have been taken in two burglaries, and contacted the owners, who declined to press charges. The owner of a third vehicle broken into, however, did want to prosecute.
    That vehicle was located in an enclosed garage, meaning the suspects entered the garage to break into the vehicle, police alleged.
