A Milton man was arrested early this morning after he allegedly went up to a car parked on Linden Street and pointed a gun at its two occupants after one of them asked if he was OK, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
Andrew Regan, 41, had bail set at $1,000 today at his arraignment in Brighton District Court on charges of carrying a gun while intoxicated and assault with a dangerous weapon. Judge David Donnelly ordered Regan to stay out of Allston and Brighton, undergo random alcohol tests and not seek reinstatement of his firearms license while his case is pending, the DA's office reports.
According to the DA's office:
Shortly after 2:30 a.m. today, a man walking in the area of Linden Street in Allston approached two males, ages 21 and 22, as they sat talking inside a stopped vehicle. When asked if he was okay, the man allegedly pulled out a firearm and pointed it at one of the men inside the vehicle. The vehicle quickly drove off and the victim called 911.
Boston Police responded to the area and located a man in the area of Harvard and Brighton avenues, later identified as Regan, who matched the description provided by the victim and witness. According to prosecutors, Regan was unsteady on his feet and slurred his words as officers spoke to him. He was carrying a licensed Smith & Wesson 9 mm that was loaded with eight rounds of ammunition.
The victim and witness both positively identified Regan as the man who pointed a gun at the victim, prosecutors said.
