One Detained at Gunpoint in Eureka This Afternoon
When the driver reached the end of the road, the witness said he pulled into the turnout there. “An officer got out with his gun drawn,” she said. “He yelled, “Put both your hands out the window now.” Then she said, the officer approached the vehicle with his gun drawn. “He got the guy out of the car and then cuffed him,” she said. Four other law enforcement vehicles showed up. There was at least one sheriff deputy, the witness said.
At this time we’re not sure why the
arrest incident occurred. When we get more information, we’ll update. [Note: It appears that there was no actual arrest but rather the man was detained and eventually released.]
