GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) — A Colorado man who police say pointed a toy gun at an officer and called it a Halloween prank is facing criminal charges that prosecutors are calling "felony stupid."
Police say 29-year-old Patricio Preciado pointed a toy gun in the face of Grand Junction police Officer Cody Kennedy early Friday. The Daily Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1auSc0K ) reports that the officer said he drew his handgun as Preciado laughed and said it was a joke.
According to the officer's arrest affidavit, Kennedy "told him it wasn't funny and that I had almost shot him."
Preciado faces charges of attempted robbery and felony menacing. He was released on bond Friday, and a number listed for him was disconnected. His attorney didn't return a message left at her office Saturday.
