Douglas County District Judge Sally Pokorny Tuesday dismissed two aggravated assault charges against a 27-year-old Kansas City, Kan., man accused of displaying a handgun in August during a domestic dispute in the 1600 block of Haskell Avenue.
Aaron J. Epps was in court Tuesday for a preliminary hearing, but witnesses to the alleged incident did not appear. Epps’ defense asked for, and was granted, dismissal of the charges.
Epps was accused of threatening a 17-year-old juvenile and another man with a gun during the incident. He also faced a misdemeanor domestic battery count for having physical contact with a woman.
