"There was a witness to this," Rozes said. The witness was Heare's mother, police reports said.
Heare, who also was charged with second-degree assault and resisting arrest, told France that he did not point the gun at Lewis.
"I only pulled it out for self-protection," Heare said.
Maryland State Police said they learned that a number of nonemergency 911 calls were made Friday at around 7:30 a.m. from the home shared by Heare and Lewis.
Less than an hour later, Heare allegedly showed up at the Washington County Narcotics Task Force building demanding police.
Trooper 1st Class T.R. Bequette went to the Oak Springs address and contacted Lewis who told him Heare was in the house.
She told Bequette she was assaulted, police reports said.
After leaving the house briefly, Lewis returned and the gun was pointed at her, police reports said.
Heare, on the other hand, told police his leather coat had been burned and he had been assaulted.
When asked about the gun, Heare told Bequette the gun was in the bedroom but Lewis said he was sitting on it, police reports said.
Bequette asked Heare to move but he resisted, police reports said. The trooper moved him and found the loaded weapon under a pillow, police reports said.
Heare resisted being handcuffed, police reports said.
Heare and Lewis have lived together for 18 years and have four children, police reports said.
