Fan at Little League game pulls gun on fellow fans

A 58-year old fan was using "loud and profane" language while watching a Little League game in Quilcene, Washington.  When another fan told him to watch his language in front of the kids, the man went to his vehicle, retrieved a .32-caliber handgun, then came back and threatened the other man with it, then pointed the gun up into the bleachers where other adults and children were seated.

From the article:
A Brinnon man was arrested Saturday evening at a Little League field after he threatened another man with a gun during an altercation. The suspect, 58, was booked into Jefferson County jail on charges of assault in the first degree, reckless endangerment, and harassment, police said.
Witnesses told police that the suspect was using "loud and profane" language when another spectator, a 64-year-old Quilcene man asked him to watch his language in front of the children. The suspect then allegedly walked to his car, leading the witnesses to believe he was leaving. However, he returned with a handgun.
The suspect then reportedly pointed the handgun in the other man's face, threatening to kill him. The gun was also pointed toward the bleachers, where adults and children were watching the game. The suspect left without firing the gun.
Police said the uspsect told deputies he felt threatened by the other man. They recovered a .32 ACP caliber handgun at his home.
