Sauk Centre, MN

(Sauk Centre, MN) -- A man who pointed a B-B gun at Sauk Centre Police is now facing assault charges. Officers first approached the suspect early Friday night because he had an active warrant. The suspect started to walk away but then turned and pointed a black gun at an officer who then shot at the suspect with a taser. Several officers were needed to subdue the man. It was not until he was placed under arrest that officers recognized the weapon was a B-B gun, not a pistol.
