WINONA, Minn. (FOX 47) -- A Winona man is facing charges after pointing a fake gun at a police officer early Saturday morning.
According to Winona Police Chief Paul Bostrack, an officer on patrol saw a man in the middle of the intersection at Main Street and 9th Street around 2 a.m. waving his arms.
Chief Bostrack says as Sgt. Jared Rasmussen got closer, he noticed the man, 49-year-old Brently Johnson, appeared to be pointing a small revolver at him.
Sgt. Rasmussen drew his own gun and ordered Johnson to drop his gun.
Johnson threw the gun down on the ground and told the officer it was only a cap gun.
Johnson was taken into custody and faces charges of terroristic threats and display of a replica firearm.
