The next quote from Insp. Paul Stacey can tell us even with a pellet gun, one can cause harm.
"They just saw someone pointing a gun and was a little concerned," Stacey said. "The fella wasn't too happy to see us because he had a warrant for fraud (put out by) RCMP."
Police seized the pellet gun and made the arrest at a nearby restaurant where the suspect went with his two children. Yes, his two children who had to watch him get taken away by policemen, rather than earlier when he was aiming at the pigeons.
There were no details about the fraud charges nor if the alleged pigeon problem had been resolved. We hope not.\
