PAWTUCKET, R.I. — Police say a Rhode Island man was arrested for chasing another man around with a rifle during an argument at a veterans organization on the Fourth of July.
Police were called to an American Legion post in Pawtucket late Tuesday. A man told officers that 32-year-old Steven Burgos pulled a gun on him after an argument.
Authorities say a police dog helped officers track down Burgos and arrest him. A loaded .22-caliber rifle was seized.
Burgos faces charges of assault, using a firearm in the commission of a violent crime and disorderly conduct. He was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday.
It’s unclear if Burgos has an attorney who can comment on his behalf.
