Man arrested after flashing BB gun at party at Acadia residence


A man has been arrested after allegedly flashing a BB gun at a student at a party at an Acadia University residence. CTV News reports that Acadia issued a security alert at around 1AM on Saturday after an incident involving an 18-year-old male non-student visitor in Cutten House in which the visitor reportedly “bumped into” another man before brandishing a handgun at him. Cutten House residents were instructed to return to and remain in their rooms, while those who were not inside the residence were told not to return until further notice. The lockdown was lifted at about 3:30am after the RCMP issued an “all clear.” The man was arrested and charged with uttering threats, use of an imitation firearm, and carrying a concealed weapon.
