Deputy: Bartlesville man points gun at woman

Detained by deputies, Ledford reportedly admitted to carrying a pistol outside his residence Saturday morning during an argument with the alleged victim.

During Ledford's appearance in Washington County District Court on Tuesday, the judge ordered him back to court on Sept. 7.
