  • 85-Year-Old Threatens Police Sergeant With BB Gun


    From: http://cbs2chicago.com/local/bb.gun....2.1213481.html

    An 85-year-old man was promptly arrested after allegedly threatening a sergeant with a BB gun he'd hidden under a hat while he contested a parking ticket Saturday afternoon in northwest suburban Huntley.

    Peter J. Reilly of 12967 Penefield Lane in Huntley was charged with a misdemeanor count of unlawful use of a weapon after allegedly bringing the gun to the Huntley Police Dept. about 2 p.m. Saturday, according to a release from police.

    Reilly came into the front lobby to complain about a parking ticket, approached the front window and spoke with the records division sergeant about his ticket, the release said. During the conversation, he became angry and took out a black handgun he'd concealed in a hit he was holding in his hands.

    Reilly allegedly pointed the gun at the records sergeant, who was in an area protected by bulletproof glass, the release said.

    Reilly refused repeated orders to drop the weapon, but officers quickly responded to the lobby and were able to take it away without incident. There were no reports of injuries.

    Police later discovered the gun was a BB gun. However, it was equipped with laser sites which gave it the appearance of a real handgun, the release said.

    "This situation could have quickly turned tragic," Depucty Chief Todd Fulton said. "We are very fortunate this incident ended as peacefully as it did."

    Reilly posted $100 cash bond and was released with a court date of Oct. 23 in McHenry County Court in Woodstock.

      Does this mean I can go up to my local law enforcement agency, scare the crap out of everyone - and do it while not being harmed for the low low price of 100 dollars?!

        Yeah, isn't that unbelievable? This obviously disturbed man is now back out on the street. Let's cross our fingers he doesn't get pulled over anytime soon and he feel the step it up even more.

          What I find equally unbelieveable is that he didn't get dropped permanently right there in the lobby.

            County probably doesn't want to be stuck with an 85 year old's medical bills.

            They probably figure he'll keel over before the trial, anyway.

              That was a good idea...though the consequences don't seem to be too harsh.

                Thats where my mind went. I was thinking shouldn't that headline read, "BB gun wielding 85 year old shot shot by police"
                "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”

                — John Stuart Mill

                        Then the article states "Police taser elderly man with poor parking skills."

                          2 rounds center mass.
                          Most people fail because they trade what they want MOST, for what they want at the MOMENT.

                          Is it any surprise that cops don't trust anyone?

                            That's one spiffy BB gun he had if it came with "laser sites".

                              BB Guns are getting more advanced these days. Just look at this bb gun with laser.



                              Or this one....
