An inebriated Florida man was arrested after allegedly threatening other parents over some trash-talking while flaunting his gun at his young son’s football game.
According to an affidavit acquired by FOX 35, Quan Isom’s kid participated in a Pop Warner football game during homecoming festivities at Leesburg High School on September 30.
Isom’s wife told Leesburg Police that her 40-year-old husband began arguing with their son’s parents about his football talents.
One parent allegedly started trash-talking Isom’s son, claiming that their youngster was superior to his.
According to police, Isom became agitated and marched over to his neighbouring pickup truck to retrieve his rifle.
According to the affidavit, he was parked near his parents, who called local police after noticing Isom putting the revolver in his belt.
When authorities arrived at the high school parking area, they were able to locate the man’s vehicle based on the description provided by callers and conducted a traffic stop.
According to the affidavit, Isom’s wife cooperated with police during the traffic encounter. According to police, she revealed to them that her husband had a gun, but it was hidden beneath the driver’s seat at the time of the traffic stop.
Authorities discovered an EAA.357-calibre revolver in the cylinder behind the seat, along with four rounds of.38 special ammo.
“The condition of the firearm was ready to fire a round due to the location of the rounds in the cylinder,” police said in the affidavit.
According to the report, she also told authorities that her husband was inebriated, which is why he was in the passenger seat throughout the stop. According to the affidavit, investigators discovered two beer bottles and a bottle of whisky in the automobile.
Isom allegedly threatened to kill the K-9 on the spot and refused to comply with authorities’ repeated requests to get on the ground. According to the affidavit, police had to accompany Isom to the ground in order to arrest him.
According to court documents, Isom was detained on Oct. 1 at the Lake County jail and charged with negligent exhibition of a handgun on a school campus, resisting or obstructing without violence, possessing a firearm on a school campus, and possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon.
According to FOX 35, a criminal background check indicated that Isom had 11 prior felony convictions and should not be in possession of a gun.
