Officers from the Juneau Police Department arrested a man after police say he threatened a pizza delivery driver with a loaded firearm.
Ronald Patrick Hensley, 45, was arrested Friday and charged with third-degree assault, a felony, and fourth-degree misconduct involving weapons, a misdemeanor, according to Lt. Krag Campbell of the JPD.
The delivery driver, a 56-year-old Juneau man, told JPD that he was delivering a pizza to an apartment complex on the 9300 block of Glacier Highway, Campbell said. When the delivery driver attempted to deliver the pizza, an apparently intoxicated man pointed a loaded firearm at him and yelled at him. The suspect then slammed the door, without taking the pizza, Campbell said.
Police responded and attempted to make contact with the suspect.
After several unsuccessful attempts, the man exited the residence without the firearm and was taken into custody without further incident, Campbell said. The firearm was located inside the apartment. Alcohol appears to be a factor, Campbell said.
