'Pretty Little Liars' Actor Charged With Pointing Gun At Neighbor

LOS ANGELES ( — "Pretty Little Liars" actor Brandon Jones was charged Thursday with pointing a gun at a neighbor during a dispute.

Jones, 27, was charged with one felony count of assault with a firearm and one misdemeanor count each of exhibiting a deadly weapon and exhibiting a concealable firearm in public, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced. He is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday.

The charges stem from an altercation on Oct. 30, 2015. Prosecutors say Jones exhibited a hidden handgun during a dispute with a neighbor at his North Hills home.

The actor, who has a recurring role on the show "Pretty Little Liars" -- is also charged with brandishing a knife and later pointing a handgun at a neighbor during a different dispute on March 24.

Jones faces more than five years in state prison if convicted as charged.
