Iberia Parish Sheriff's deputies were called out to restaurant on Center Street in New Iberia after a disturbance there.

The victim, an employee of the business, says the suspect came into the business and started a disturbance about a food order.

Police say 35-year-old Jerry Stevens Meyer was asked by the victim to step outside the business, and that's when the woman alleges that man lifted his shirt to show her a gun.  The man, she say, then threatened her and then left.

Investigators say the gun Meyer allegedly showed to the worker was stolen.

Meyer has been charged with:

  • Aggravated assault with a firearm
  • Illegal possession of a stolen firearm
