A 37-year-old man was arrested Thursday night and charged with disorderly conduct after he admitted he flashed his handgun and threatened to kill two of his neighbors, according to a police report.

Police said the man told officers he did pull out the handgun and threaten the people but never chambered a round or pointed the weapon at the people, the report shows. Police said the two neighbors agreed that was what occurred.

The neighbors told police the man was “blocking” their path as they were walking in their apartment complex. They said they tried to ask the man to wake up and to move, when he reportedly became angry and went to his apartment to get the handgun.

The man was charged only with disorderly conduct, police said.
