An Auburn man is facing criminal charges after allegedly waving around a BB gun during a fight Friday, the Auburn Police Department said.
A call for a fight on Washington Street came in around 5:30 p.m., county 911 dispatchers said. The APD said when officers arrived, they found Scott A. Corey, 42, of 37 Washington St., with what was later determined to be a BB gun. Multiple people involved in the skirmish thought the weapon, which Corey waved around, was a real gun, the APD said.
Corey was arrested around 7:30 p.m. and charged with third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a class D felony, due to a previous second-degree assault conviction, and was also charged with second-degree menacing, a class A misdemeanor.
