SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — A retired police officer from the San Antonio Police Department was indicted Monday by a Bexar County grand jury on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
In a video shared by KSAT that was captured by the defendant in the case, Schiller can be seen advancing on the person recording while holding a handgun.
Schiller, who is wearing plain clothes, can be heard telling the man recording to put their hands up while accusing them of stealing a phone.
The man recording the video tells Schiller that he didn’t steal the phone, but that he was trying to return it to the owner.
The altercation took place in a Home Depot parking lot on September 27, 2020. Schiller was arrested on October 23, 2021, on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Schiller was indicted on the same charge today and is awaiting a trial date.
Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon is a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000.
