MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Police have arrested a 19-year-old Madison man after he allegedly threatened a Tennessee couple with a fake gun.
WISC-TV reports a 22-year-old woman told police she was leaving a Madison Walgreens late Wednesday evening when she saw a man hovering near her car and pointing an object at her boyfriend in the front seat. Police say the object had a laser and the man pointed it at her as she approached. She dared him to shoot her and the man left.
Police arrested him nearby a short time later. The man talked about blowing up the city and stated he kills police officers.
Police say the object turned out to be a lighter with an attached laser that looked like a functional gun.
