Police Called for Man Cursing Up a Storm in Lyon Park Gun Store

Police cars outside of Department of Human Services (file photo)Police were called Wednesday afternoon after a man with mental health issues walked into the Lyon Park gun store and started yelling obscenities.

The incident was reported around 2:20 p.m. at Nova Armory (2300 N. Pershing Drive).

The man left before police arrived. He was later found but was referred to county social services and not charged with a crime.

This was at least the second time police were called to the store this fall. In September police investigated a potential burglary at Nova Armory; no guns were taken during the break-in.

From an Arlington County Police Department crime report:

At approximately 2:19 PM on November 16, police were dispatched to the 2300 block of N. Pershing Drive for the report of a male subject who entered the business yelling obscenities. The man had exited the business prior to police arrival but responding officers were able to identify and locate the man. After investigation, officers determined that no crime had occurred. The subject has a history of mental health issues and had been referred to county government services.
