Man Charged With Assault After Pulling Gun At Child's Game

A Lubbock man faces felony charges, after authorities say he pulled a gun during a children's soccer game. Police arrested 25-year-old Tye Burke on Saturday afternoon. He's now charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Authorities tell NewsChannel 11 that Burke was watching his child play at the Berl Huffman Complex when he apparently got mad at the coach and started yelling at her. They say the coach's husband tried to settle him down, and then those two got into a fight in the stands, and that's when Burke pulled a gun.

"It's unfortunate; it creates a bad situation for everyone.  We certainly hate to see that in our community as well as any other community," Lubbock Police Captain Greg Stevens said.  Police say an off duty prison guard tackled Burke when he saw Burke pull the gun and point it at the victim's head. Authorities say Burke eventually put down the gun, and they took him to jail.

Investigators tell us that Burke has a license to carry a concealed weapon, but that doesn't give him the right to threaten people.  "The fact that the individual had a permit simply compounded the situation and brought into play a few other ramifications that will come into play down the road," Stevens said. 

Lubbock police say they will turn Burke's permit over to the state, who will determine what other action to take.  Again, Burke is now charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.  He's since bonded out of the Lubbock County Jail.
