BROOKSVILLE —Brooksville Police say a 22-year-old Spring Hill man threatened two people with an assault-style rifle early Sunday in a Walmart parking lot.

Bradley Mobley faces two charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Police say Mobley and his girlfriend were involved in a dispute in the parking lot at the Walmart Supercenter at 7305 S Broad St. when a man and woman walked up to the girlfriend and asked if she needed help. As the woman was talking to Mobley's girlfriend, Mobley drove by and pointed the weapon at them, authorities said.

Police say Mobley's girlfriend began walking toward the nearby former Sonic restaurant. The man followed her to ensure nothing happened. Mobley then confronted him again with a rifle "telling him not to get involved," police said.

Mobley was being held Monday in lieu of bail at the Hernando County Detention Center.
