Former NBA guard Shannon Brown was arrested on Saturday on an aggravated assault charge after police say he fired a rifle at two people at his home in Tyrone, Georgia.

According to multiple media reports, Brown was released on bond on Monday.

Tyrone Police Department spokesman Philip Nelson told local newspaper The Citizen that a couple looking for a home to buy entered the property of Brown's house, which was showing a "For Sale" sign.

The couple maintain that they were invited by an unknown person to enter the house, but then Brown chased them away with a rifle, shooting five or six times toward them as they exited.

Brown told police he thought the pair were breaking into his home. Police found one shell casing in the area.
