Man ‘threatens’ club staff with fake gun
A MAN has been charged with threatening staff with a replica handgun at a licensed club on the Central Coast.
Police say they were called to the club in Halekulani, near Budgewoi, about 1:30am yesterday (Saturday) after a 25-year-old man allegedly threatened staff with a handgun.
The man had argued with police earlier in the evening and had been evicted from the premises, police say.
The man was later arrested at a nearby unit, and police discovered the handgun was a replica.
The alleged offender was charged with offences including possessing an unauthorised pistol and three counts of common assault.
He was granted bail and is due to appear at Wyong Local Court later this month.
