Anthony Cook, 28, of the 100 block of Manhattan Ave., was charged with aggravated menacing, assault and aggravated trespassing.

Cook called police at about 4 p.m. Sunday and said he was on his way to confront a man who was driving a pickup that struck him while he was riding a motorcycle the night prior, the report said.

When police arrived at the man’s home, witnesses told them Cook had a gun and had threatened the man, the report said. Cook also allegedly grabbed the man’s neck.

Police seized from a Cook a .45-caliber handgun, which was fully loaded with one round in the chamber, the report said. Cook told officers he only flashed the gun at the man.

Cook was arrested and taken to the Sandusky County jail, then released Monday afternoon.

Stop It

Dumbass.

Simple Enough II

Was this the incident where the motorcycle was hit by a "car" Saturday night when he was coming home from work, and the driver of the car took off. Not sure where I stand on this as the driver did hit the motorcyclist and he did run......DB driver.

Stop It

One in the chamber = dumbass.

Stop It

If one in the chamber is not considered "intent", it damn well should be. The USA is NOT a war zone, YET.

Going after somebody who's no longer threatening you and brandishing a firearm does, indeed = dumbass. But one in the chamber? When a split second can make the difference between life and death, or when the number of shots can make the difference between life and death, I don't see a thing wrong with it. That assumes, of course, you're not a dumbass. Besides, while the implication here makes it sound bad, a fully loaded old-school revolver ALWAYS has "one in the chamber!"

Stop It

Not mine, Samantha. It's a ca. 1925 Colt Police Positive .38 special, revolver. I wouldn't ever load that first chamber, Police Positive or not. This gun is more easily locked and loaded by cocking the hammer in single action than using double action and it has no safety. Never have the chamber filled unless you are ready for battle.

SamAdams

Ah, but yours isn't fully loaded then, is it? Smart move on your part, no question. But newer guns WITH safeties are another story, IMO.

Sam, brandishing the firearm was a mistake (even say lifting the shirt tail or pulling a jacket aside to expose it), even if you have a CCW. Now we also know how some of the local story writers like to embellish a bit ( okay a lot). I agree with keeping 1 in the chamber or under the hammer if it has a transfer bar.

Stop It

A whole nation full of half cocked and fully loaded. No wonder some hate guns.

Simple Enough II

Stop it, remember You are always to treat a firearm as if it us loaded.

Stop It

SEII, If I flip the switch that allows my 6 shot drum to fall open in the light, I can see right through the drum and barrel. There is no mistaking that it is or is not loaded. Ya can't frip up a loaded revolver! No way!
