Gun waving man arrested


A 66 year-old man was arrested and booked for second-degree trespassing and unlawful display of a weapon after he was spotted laying in a yard waving a pistol in the air in the 2500 block of Cannon St., Sgt. Keith Dale of the Aberdeen Police Department said late Saturday afternoon.

The man is being held in the Aberdeen jail, pending a mental health evaluation.

The incident in West Aberdeen was reported at 2:38 p.m.

“He was laying in the yard of a resident pointing the gun up into the air,” Sgt. Dale said.

Two other pistols, taken for safekeeping, were found in his locked car nearby, he said.
