By  | 

A man has been arrested after he pointed a gun at a Dickinson Police officer. Around 12:20 a.m. today, police responded to the 100 block of Eighth Avenue East after getting a 911 call from a person requesting for help in removing a man from an apartment building.

Police say they didn't know which apartment number the caller lived in and who they needed to remove.

An officer walked up the stairway and found 41-year-old Jared Altemose from Dickinson, pointing a gun at him while trying to hide behind a door. The officer stepped back to a safe location and directed Altemose to drop the weapon.

Altemose complied and was arrested. Police say they believe alcohol may have been a factor. Altemose was charged with Terrorizing, Illegally Possessing a Firearm and Disorderly Conduct.
