This guy literally got out of a truck, walked up to the sidewalk, and fires his shotgun in the air in what appears to be an attempt to scare protesters in front of the police station. I don't know what he thought would happen, but he ended up getting arrested at the ripe young age of 75. He did this in FRONT OF THE POLICE STATION. To make it worse, when the cops told him to drop it, he refused, then jumped back in the truck and sped off!

Statesman Journal reports: "A Keizer man was arrested shortly after 9 p.m. Thursday night after firing a shotgun near a group of protesters on the street in front of the Salem Police Department station.

Police said Larry McFarland, 75, drove up to the sidewalk where a group of about 20 people were gathered earlier in the evening at the police station to protest police. The group was protesting the death of a 13-year-old boy by a Chicago police officer last month after authorities released body camera footage of the shooting on Thursday.

McFarland stepped out of his vehicle with the shotgun, pointed the shotgun at the crowd and fired it into the air. Salem Police said no one was injured.

Salem Police officers who were observing the protest approached McFarland after the shot and ordered him to drop his weapon. He refused, got in his truck and left.

Salem Police conducted a high-risk traffic stop a few blocks north and arrested him.
