TROUTDALE, Ore. (KOIN) — For the second time in two weeks, a Troutdale man was in court charged with menacing and pointing a firearm at another person, and police searched his home Thursday looking for more weapons.

Troutdale police said they’ve gotten calls from neighbors of Brent Wright that he’s been a problem, but over the past two weeks things have gotten much worse.

On July 25, Lloyd Fivecoats was parked on the street waiting for a friend near Wright’s home when he said the 53-year-old man pointed an assault rifle at the car.

They left, but he drove back and his friend captured cellphone images and video. A voice is heard on the video, “Holy —-! Call the ——- cops!”

Wednesday night, Jordan Fivecoats said Wright pointed an assault weapon at him.

“I seen he had an AR-15,” he told KOIN 6 News. “My girlfriend was really scared.”

When Wright was arrested two weeks ago, he was let out on bail the next day.

“It’s like he’s a time bomb waiting to go off,” Sharry Fivecoats said. She would like to see him kept in jail this time.
