A former Houston congressman is now charged with assault. Longtime lawmaker and lawyer Craig Washington was indicted on two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He's accused of shooting at two men who were parked near his law office New Year's Day.

Washington isn't in custody, but the district attorney's office says arrangements have been made for him to turn himself in.
