Police tracked down a man accused of pulling a gun during a fight outside an Oregon City bar.
Mark Jacobson, 50, of Oregon City was cited for menacing after the altercation Monday night.
Officers were called to the Tee Time Bar and Grill, 19197 Molalla Ave., at 10:45 p.m. Investigators said an argument started after a woman asked a man if he could move his vehicle so they could back out of their parking spot.
That led to a second altercation, according to police, that included pushing and shoving. Officers said Jacobson then pulled a handgun and pointed it at another man.
Jacobson then got into his vehicle and drove away.
Police found the man at his home and seized his gun and concealed weapons permit. Jacobson is due in court Feb. 4.
Investigators said there is nothing in police reports to suggest deadly force would have been remotely justified in this incident. Oregon City police said it is illegal to bring a gun to a fight or an argument.
"Making such decisions after drinking alcohol will most likely not produce good results," according to Oregon City police.
