A 34-year-old man was charged Tuesday with threatening an Overland Park, KS, police sergeant with a gun, reports the Kansas City Star.
Bradley Don Poland was charged in Johnson County District Court with aggravated assault and battery on a law enforcement officer. His bond was set at $250,000.
The sergeant suffered minor injuries in the incident, which began when he pulled over a car that was driving without headlights and driving the wrong way on 103rd Street around 12:45 a.m. Tuesday, according to police.
The driver had one arm behind his back, and the sergeant asked the driver to show his hands as he approached. The driver showed the sergeant a pistol, but would not let go of it. The sergeant grabbed the driver’s arm to control the gun, and the men continued to struggle until the sergeant was able to disarm the man.
