An Austin-area resident, who apparently takes his cable TV pretty seriously, might want to start checking out Court TV.

Authorities say Brett Wright of Del Valle pulled a gun on two cable service technicians while they were working inside his home Saturday.

They were able to escape and notify police. But Wright wouldn't budge, even after the Austin SWAT team surrounded his home.

Authorities finally managed to distract Wright and take him into custody. He's charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
