Drunken NRA Fan Nabbed On Weapons Charge
Cops: Man, 58, pointed gun at ex-neighbor
APRIL 12--A drunken man wearing a National Rifle Association t-shirt pointed a gun at another man during an argument at a Connecticut grocery store, according to police.
Officers were dispatched Monday to the Wooster Street Market in Shelton after a 911 caller reported that a man “brandished a firearm” during a quarrel.
The complainant, cops noted, reported that he was “arguing over neighborhood issues” with Mario Williams, 58, when “Williams pulled a firearm and pointed it at him during the dispute.”
After questioning Williams at the scene, police determined that he was under the influence and still in possession of a handgun.
Seen in the above mug shot, Williams was arrested on several charges, including reckless endangerment, threatening, and carrying a firearm while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Free on $2500 bond, Williams is scheduled for an April 24 court appearance.
Founded in 1871, the NRA bills itself as “the premier firearms education organization in the world.” (1 page)
