A man was hospitalized for medical evaluation after walking into a West Side police station on Thanksgiving—armed with a fully-loaded rifle and declaring martial law, reports the Chicago Sun Times.

The man entered the Harrison District police station at 3151 W. Harrison around 4 a.m., carrying an AR-15 assault rifle and a loaded 30-round magazine, police said. Police said the man told them he was declaring martial law, but he did not point the gun at anybody or fire it.

Officers talked the man into relinquishing the weapon.
