PHOENIX (AP) - A man accused of firing multiple shots at a Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputy outside a substation west of Phoenix told authorities he was just trying to scare him.

Jonathan David Perez had his initial court appearance Monday and bond was set at $250,000. He doesn’t have a lawyer yet.

The 38-year-old Perez is being held on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault on an officer, criminal damage, discharge of a firearm at a non-residence, discharge of a firearm within the city limit and prohibited possession of a firearm.

The unidentified deputy wasn’t injured with the District III substation’s bulletproof doors absorbing the shots last Friday.

The deputy was in plain clothes and walking in the substation’s front door when shots were fired from a parked car.
