PINSON - AL -

A Center Point man has been arrested after authorities say he fired a pistol near a restaurant in Pinson. Jefferson County sheriff deputies say Wynston Ellis got into an argument with his ex-girlfriend at the Waffle House parking lot.  During the argument, he slapped her in the face.  A male employee went outside to ask him to leave the property.  Deputies say Ellis pointed a pistol at him and fired one shot.  The bullet missed and Ellis got in a car with another man and a woman and left the parking lot.  As they drove off, Ellis fired another shot into the air.  The suspect was later stopped on Center Point Road and Westchester Drive.  The 21 year old was arrested and charged with carrying a pistol without a license, public intoxication and two counts of third degree domestic violence.  Attempted murder and menacing charges are being screened.  The case remains under investigation.
