Guns drawn, cops arrest man

9:45 Saturday--

The wife of the arrested man contacted Castanet to tell us that shortly after this photo was taken, the man was released and the police apologized.

The man was packing his truck to take his son to a fishing derby. A neighbour saw him packing his legally owned firearms into the truck and called the RCMP.

Five police cars responded to the scene and upon checking his license, released the man and were "extremely apologetic."

Police have not been available for comment on the story.

 


Kelowna RCMP pulled a man from his vehicle today and arrested him with guns drawn today while a child sat in the car.

Witnesses said that one officer had his firearm drawn while another made the arrest on Cawston Avenue in Kelowna.

Unconfirmed reports are that there was a child in the car at the time.

It is unknown what the man is alleged to have done, or if police proceeded with charges.

If you saw the incident, please send information, pictures or video to [email protected]
