APD: Man Arrested After Threatening Children With A Gun

A houseguest wore out his welcome when he started threatening children at an Anderson home. Anderson Police were called shortly before Midnight Sunday night to a house on Shasta Street. A juvenile told them that 41-year-old Christopher Justin West was brandishing a gun and threatening several kids. After a brief standoff, West was taken into custody. He apparently had been drinking and became belligerent. He stashed the gun in his car shortly before police arrived. Officers say the gun was unregistered, and drugs were found in the car as well.
