A Stickney man is charged with aggravated assault after shooting a grill near his wife.

Hoffman grabbed a gun inside the front door of the house and shot the gas grill outside the home. His wife told law enforcement this action scared her because she was only a few feet away from the grill.

The maximum penalty of aggravated assault is 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine.
