HOUSTON – A washateria employee is charged for firing gunshots at a trespasser inside of a southeast Houston washateria Tuesday afternoon.
Robert M. Le, 31, an employee of the Fuqua Washateria located at the 11000 block of Fuqua Street, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Police said Corey Laine, 25, was reportedly trespassing at the washateria. When Le tried to ask Laine to leave, Laine ran and allegedly knocked over Le’s mother, who suffered a minor injury, according to police.

Laine was transported to an area hospital in stable condition.
Le remained on the scene with police, where he was later arrested and charged.
