LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Federal officials say an Arkansas man has been indicted on assault and firearm charges after he allegedly climbed over a post office counter and fired multiple shots in the direction of an employee.

U.S. Attorney Cody Hiland said Wednesday that Stephen Gregory Potts was charged with one count of assaulting a postal service employee and two federal firearms counts.

Authorities say Potts initially appeared to be filling out a mailing label at the post office in Conway on Saturday. After employees stopped him from walking through a workroom door, he allegedly pulled out a gun, climbed over the counter and fired five or six shots, barely missing a supervisor.

Potts is in federal custody and court records say he does not yet have an attorney who can speak for him.
