Officer: "Grossly intoxicated" man points gun at cop

Posted: Updated:

Police arrested a man for pointing a firearm at a police officer on Sam Rittenberg Boulevard.

The responding officer said he saw the driver, later identified as Matthew Ribinson, sitting in the drivers seat with his eyes closed, according to the police report.

The officer said after he repeatedly tried to speak to Ribinson, the suspect pulled out black pistol and pointed it at the officer's head. The officer said he quickly ducked and ran into some nearby bushes for cover until backup units arrived.

When the officer approached Ribsinson again and read him his Miranda Rights, Ribsinson denied pointing the gun at the officer, according to the report. The officer said the suspect appeared "grossly intoxicated" and that he has glassy and bloodshot eyes. Ribsinson admitted  that "he had a couple of beers earlier."
