COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A Columbus man is behind bars after threatening a group of people with a shotgun.

Forty-five-year-old Javle Johnson is in the Muscogee County jail after pulling a 12-gauge shotgun and pointing it at three people while they were pumping gas.

Victims say Johnson pulled up and started accusing one the men of having relations with his wife.

Johnson is being charged with three counts of reckless conduct, three counts of pointing a gun at another, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and simple battery. He will appear in Recorder's Court Monday morning at 9:00 a.m.
