Man wanted in Snapchat shooting videos turns himself in, woman also arrested

Woman also arrested in connection with case

HOUSTON – The man wanted in connection with Snapchat videos showing two people indiscriminately firing guns in Houston turned himself in to authorities Tuesday.

Micahel Anthony Cuellar, 29, showed up at the courthouse Tuesday morning with an attorney after a warrant charging him with deadly conduct was issued last week.

Sierra Tarbutton, 27, who investigators said is the woman seen in the video, was arrested Monday morning and made her first court appearance Monday afternoon. She was also charged with deadly conduct.

Tarbutton’s attorney said the incident has been blown out of proportion.

“The allegations are that they were shooting at inanimate objects. From what I understand, there wasn’t anyone anywhere near where they were shooting,” said Clay Conrad, Tarbutton’s attorney.

Prosecutors objected because Tarbutton was already serving six years deferred adjudication for harassing a police officer and threatening an officer’s children in 2015.

Tarbutton was placed on probation in September 2016.

Investigators said a string of videos posted on the social media website showed the pair driving through west Houston, firing guns out the windows of the vehicle.
