A Brazil man was arrested Monday after he allegedly brandished a weapon at a local restaurant.
According to information made available by the Brazil City Police Department, an unidentified female filed a complaint with two officers Monday evening identifying Billie J. Summers, 43, Brazil, as the person who pointed a firearm at her while she was at Taco Bell, 2170 East National Avenue, Brazil.
A short time later, an officer spotted Summers driving around in an area near where the victim lives.
BCPD Captain Mark Loudermilk told The Brazil Times the office initiated what is called a "felony stop" on the vehicle, which means Summers was ordered out of the car and told to lie on the ground while officers took him into custody.
"Anytime a firearm or gun is mentioned in a complaint, it becomes paramount in priority for law enforcement. This type of behavior is totally unacceptable," Loudermilk told The Brazil Times Tuesday. "It will end in an arrest 100 percent of the time."
During questioning, according to Loudermilk, Summers made admissions of guilt to officers. The officers allegedly located two weapons (a pistol and a long gun) and an undisclosed amount of methamphetamine and marijuana during a search of the vehicle.
Also, officers discovered Summers apparently does not have a permit for the pistol.
Summers was taken into custody and transported to the Clay County Justice Center for preliminary booking on charges of intimidation, stalking, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana under 30 grams and firearms violations.
Facing a $25,000 cash bond (with no 10 percent allowed), Summers remains incarcerated while awaiting formal court proceedings in the matter.
Officials confirm the case file has been turned over to the Clay County Prosecutor's Office for review and there is a potential for more charges in this case.
