Christopher Tucker, 32, was arrested around 7 p.m. on July 14 in the 4400 block of North Simmonds Drive.
A 29-year-old woman told police that Tucker pointed the black gun at her, said “Chicago is a dangerous place,” and then pulled the trigger, according to court records.
On the way to the police station, Tucker allegedly told officers that “it was just a water gun. I was only joking.”
He’s charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a replica firearm.
