Court documents say a man shot into a Capital Metro bus in East Austin back in October after an argument with another passenger over headphones.

Deantony Standberry, 24, is now charged with criminal mischief, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, and four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

It happened just before noon on Wednesday, Oct. 24, at the intersection of Springdale Road and Oak Springs Drive next to Givens Park.

The arrest affidavit said Standberry told a juvenile female passenger on the bus that the headphones she was wearing were his. Two other bus passengers came to the girl's defense when she refused to hand them over.

When Standberry threatened the other passengers for interfering, one of them grabbed Standberry's backpack and threw it out of the bus while it was stopped. Standberry rushed to grab it and jump back on the bus, but he was pushed out by the passenger. That's when Standberry pulled a gun from the backpack and fired multiple shots at the bus as it drove away, court documents said.

A detective recognized Standberry from a surveillance image from the bus, and officers then showed the passengers a photo lineup with Standberry, who all positively identified him, the affidavit said.

Online records show Standberry in custody at the Travis County Jail with a $227,500 bond.
