[BRADENTON] – An 80-year old Florida Man faces charges after threatening 5 kids with a gun after they climbed his fence in an attempt to retrieve a ball.
Police received a 911 call at around 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Parents told them that 80-year old John Moreland pointed a handgun at them, demanding they get off his fence.
Moreland told police that the weapon was actually a BB gun he kept stashed under the seat of his vehicle.
The parents of the victims have decided to press charges because the kids were “extremely frightened,” the police report states. [SOURCE]
