Man arrested after alleged threat with airsoft rifle

KAHULUI – A homeless man was arrested Tuesday after he allegedly pointed what appeared to be a handgun at another man, police said.

Officers responding to the 2:38 p.m. call found an airsoft gun when they arrested 37-year-old Christopher Flanagan, said Lt. Glenn Cuomo of the Criminal Investigation Division.

He said the gun, which is not a firearm, shoots plastic pellets.

Police were called after a 40-year-old Kahului man reported seeing a man walk by with what appeared to be a handgun near Vevau and School streets in Kahului, Cuomo said. The Kahului man confronted the other man, Cuomo said, and the man allegedly pointed the gun at the victim before walking toward Queen Ka’ahumanu Center.

Officers arrested Flanagan after finding him on the staircase of the shopping center parking garage near Sears, Cuomo said.

Flanagan was charged with first-degree terroristic threatening. He was being held in lieu of $5,000 bail Wednesday at the Wailuku police station.
