A former lobbyist who loaned then-House Speaker Jim Black $500,000 dollars was in a Wake County courtroom today facing an unrelated weapons charge.
Don Beason is accused of assault by pointing a gun after authorities alleged he waived a revolver at some customers at a Raleigh gas station two months ago.
A judge continued the case until October 30th. The charge is a
misdemeanor punishable by up to 60 days in jail.
State investigators were looking at Beason after Black testified in July that Beason loaned him money to upgrade a building.
The money briefly ended up in Black's campaign account but ultimately was returned.
Beason apologized for making the loan and said he was getting out of the lobbying business.
Black is serving a federal prison sentence.
