An Odessa man starts a fight with another guy but he ended up being the one that went down.

33-year-old Javier Ramirez is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Police say Ramirez attacked Abel Leyva.

Apparently the two have a history.

Police say Leyva told a friend to call the police and that's when Ramirez pulled out a pistol and pointed it at the friend telling him to stay out of it.

We're told Ramirez then pointed the gun at Leyva and told him that this wasn't over and left before police showed up.

When police caught up with Ramirez, he told them there was a fight but no gun.

After searching his home and car, they found a gun stashed at Ramirez's business.

The gun matched Leyva's description and Ramirez was arrested.
