Man answers door, Points gun at police

    • Maybe u right Cole… it was a noise complaint before 10pm. And it’s not like he was a kid, he’s in his late 30s. Especially that he didn’t drop it right away when he saw it was cops. Really pushing your luck having to be told more than once. Cops want to make it home alive after their shift too.

  1. Wow. Now THAT is how you get yourself shot. What an insane thing to do!! They don’t know it’s a BB gun! Good on the police to handle that the way they did. Considering they had to give him SEVERAL commands! This could have been a horrible tragedy.
