(Cedar Rapids, IA) From the Department of Stupidity:
Police in Cedar Rapids arrested teenager who pulled his BB gun on the wrong car on Halloween night, which happened to be an unmarked police car containing two undercover officers.
The officers, thinking the BB gun was real, pulled out their .40-caliber Glock handguns and told 15-year-old Ryon Shelton to drop his weapon.
"They thought it was a real gun," said police Lt. Kenneth Washburn. "He dropped the gun and attempted to run and was apprehended."
Shelton told the officers that he was "just playing around" and trying to frighten people during the Halloween night incident. The teen was cited for assault while displaying a dangerous weapon and released to relatives, police said.
