Larry Ricketts, 73, of Huffman, has been arrested on an aggravated assault charge for pointing a gun at a KTRK news team last week at his home, two days after he had been charged with aggravated sexual abuse of a 5-year-old girl.

Reporter Demond Fernandez and videographer Gerzain Garcia went to Ricketts' house on Feb. 13 seeking his on-camera comment about the sexual assault allegation.

After Fernandez knocked on the door and spoke with Ricketts, Ricketts pointed a handgun at the news team, as seen on Garcia's videotape.

Earlier in the week, Ricketts had posted a bail bond after his arrest on the sex abuse charge. Now he is being held without bail in the gun case.
