DES MOINES, Iowa — A Clive man has been arrested after he allegedly pointed a gun at a bartender Tuesday.

Fifty-two-year-old Donnie Bradford faces charges of intimidation with a weapon, carrying weapons, and possession of stolen property following the incident.

Police were called to Scores Bar at 2335 Hickman after receiving a report that a man had drawn a gun on a bartender. When officers arrived one saw Bradford pointing a gun at the bartender.

Bradford dropped the gun when he noticed the officer and claimed he didn’t have one.

Bradford was arrested and police say the gun, a .38 caliber revolver, was fully loaded. Police also found a gun holster and more ammunition when they searched Bradford.

The bartender says an argument the previous day was the reason Bradford threatened him with a gun.

Police say the gun was reported stolen out of Nevada in 1984.

Bradford was taken to the Polk County Jail but has bonded out.
