BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — A Bakersfield man was arrested on Thursday after he threatened police officers with a shotgun.
According to the Bakersfield Police Department, officers were sent to the 4600 block of Ambrister Drive after receiving reports of an intoxicated man pointing a gun at a neighbor and "yelling gang affiliation references."
When officers arrived, 29-year-old Bryan Romo pointed a shotgun at officers, screamed gang affiliation references at them, and then walked back into a residence. After about an hour, Romo exited the residence but refused to comply with commands from the officers. He was eventually taken into custody with the help of a police K-9 officer.
Romo suffered a minor injury during the arrest and was transported to a local hospital for treatment. He was later arrested for aggravated assault, brandishing a weapon, and resisting arrest.
