BREAKING: 84 Year Old Man Arrested for Pointing Gun at Two Women Protesting Barack Obama
We reported several days ago that two women who were part of a protest against President Barack Obama found themselves looking down the barrel of a gun during their protest. Apparently someone didn’t like the message they were sending.
Now the suspect in that case has been arrested, and it’s an unlikely culprit.
According to WSBTV,
Police have arrested an 84-year-old man accused of pointing a gun at anti-President Barack Obama protestors.
Roy Smith said he kept the Colt .32 handgun in his car for carjackers. Gwinnett police said he faces three counts of misdemeanor simple assault and pointing a firearm at another…
…”Not your typical suspect,” conceded Gwinnett Police Cpl. Ed Ritter.
“Doesn’t matter what his age was, he still threatened somebody with that gun and he is being held accountable for it,” Ritter said.
A witness to the crime was able to provide police with a description of the vehicle, plate numbers, and a description of the suspect, which led police to the man’s home. They obtained a search warrant and found a .32 caliber Colt handgun in his car.
According to WSBTV, two women who were protesting the president, holding signs calling for his impeachment, found themselves staring down the barrel of a gun during their protest.
Marge Moore and Toni Pendley were taking part in Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment protest. The nationwide protests use interstate overpasses to display messages critical of the president and his policies.
The two women told WSBTV that a man pulled up and pointed a gun right at them, before leaning over and splashing some kind of liquid on the ground around them.
Not ones to be intimidated, the ladies say they’ll be back, from WSBTV,
The women filed a police report with Gwinnett County Police Department and said they’re not backing down.
“We’re going to come back out here. We’re not going to let him intimidate us or anyone,” Pendley said.
