#2022-319436/West Precinct/First Watch:

On 11-29-2022 at 0622 hours, an officer on patrol was flagged down by a King County Metro supervisor about a male near 3 AV and LENORA ST waving a firearm around. Officers blocked traffic on 3 AV and created contact teams. Officers attempted dialogue with the male, who appeared to be agitated, but those efforts were unsuccessful. Eventually the suspect placed the firearm down and the contact team began to chase the suspect until he tripped and was taken into custody. The firearm was determined to be fake. Further investigation showed the suspect pointed the firearm at a passing bus with occupants on it and a Metro Supervisor. Arrested for Investigation of Harassment and booked into KCJ.
