A victim told police that he was drunk and possibly high. He demanded to see his daughter and threatened to kill one of the residents inside the home where his daughter was living.

When the officer arrived, they found the man passed out in the front yard. When he came to, he motioned toward the victims and asked the officer to give him his pistol.

The two victims told police, they believed the man was asking for the pistol

The man needed an interpreter because he doesn’t speak English. Because there wasn’t one available, the initial appearance was rescheduled until 2 p.m. Wednesday.
