6-year old Kentucky boy threatened with gun for cutting through man's yard

Craig Lofton, age 6
6-year old Craig Lofton and his family were held at gunpoint by a man, James Hamm, in Fleming
County, Kentucky, because the boy cut through his yard.  It turns out the yard wasn't even owned by the man.  Hamm was arrested.  Luckily no one was hurt.

From an article:
Craig Lofton, 6, said he had just finished playing basketball in Fleming County Park, "We were just walking through his yard and he just came out and said stop walking in my yard and he said I got something for you all and he pulled out his gun." 
Lofton said James Hamm cursed at them as he held the family at gunpoint until police arrived and took him away in handcuffs. 
Police said Hamm lives in government housing, so the yard is not his. Hamm was charged with two felonies.
