Authorities: man pulls gun during argument

Authorities say a Manchester man has been arrested after he pointed a revolver at another man during an argument in rural Manchester.

Michael Thomas Short, 54, Manhcester, was arrested for assault while displaying a dangerous weapon March 13.

According to court documents, Gregory Koester was helping Janet Tayek pick up her UTV from Short’s residence on the 1400 block of 180th Avenue. While in an outbuilding, Koester told authorities that Short became upset with him and point a revolver with a brown handle at him.

Authorities say the same revolver was later located at the scene, adding that the act was done with the intent to place Koester in fear of immediate physical harm.

Short was released on a cash bond and is scheduled to appear in court March 23.
