    “ the Accused was said to have been hitting a neighbour’s visitor’s vehicle and pulled what looked like a handgun from his waistband when confronted”
    “Police were called and contained the area. The accused was located in his residence and arrested. Officers located the weapon and determined it to be a BB gun”
    He was NOT located in his residence and arrested. He was asked to come out and was arrested on the street near the barricade block off.
    I’m one of the neighbours, the gf is who hit the lower levels company’s vehicle with her body, it caused a then altercation between the owner of the truck and the upper residents gf! And just sootoday, you are giving false information by saying the gun was found on the person, as it was Not… it was not located on him because they made him pull his shirt up and spin around with his hands in the air!! I watched the whole thing from my driveway, there was NO GUN FOUND ON HIM IN HIS WAISTEBAND, as his pants were practically falling off of him and the gun in all reality would have falling off of him and landed on the road of he had it on him, which he did not. It was located later.
