A Buford man is facing numerous charges after an Oct. 27 incident in which he allegedly pointed a gun at one neighbor and waved it at others.
Police were dispatched to the 500 block of Garner Street after a caller advised a very intoxicated man in an orange t-shirt was brandishing a semi-automatic pistol. When police arrived, they immediately spotted the man, later identified as Nabor Tapia, standing in the front yard of a nearby home. When Tapia saw the officers, he reportedly ran behind the home. Witnesses directed officers to Tapia’s hiding spot and he was quickly taken into custody but did not have the gun in his possession.
One of the officers asked Tapia’s wife if he could search the property for the weapon and the woman gave her consent. As the officer approached the front porch, he saw a half-empty bottle of tequila, approximately 10 empty beer bottles, an air rifle and a white towel.
