GREELEY - Joyce Bradmon is on trial for felony menacing after she allegedly pointed a gun at her Greeley neighbor when his child used chalk on the sidewalk outside her home.
It happened back in August 2011.
"I did not do one thing wrong," Bradmon told 9News in 2011.
Michael Crawley, her neighbor, disagrees. He says his daughter and her friend were using chalk on the sidewalk outside Bradmon's home.
At that point, he says Bradmon began yelling at his kids.
He went outside and argued with Bradmon. She went inside, he says, and came back with what appeared to be a handgun.
"When she came out, she had a gun in her lap. [She] picked up the gun, waved it at me and said 'you want one of these?' At that time, I had a 6-year-old. My daughter was right here, and an 11-year-old right in front of me," Crawley said.
Bradmon says it was a pellet gun, though police in court Monday testified the gun appeared so real that they thought it was a black semi-automatic when they responded to a 911 call. Only after touching the gun did they realize it was a pellet gun.
Bradmon's defense attorney told the jury Monday that she had the pellet gun out because she wanted to kill snakes in her backyard.
He says there's no way Bradmon could have pointed the gun because she's had shoulder surgery and can't raise her arm above her head.
Crawley has since moved from the neighborhood.
The trial is expected to end Wednesday.
