Woman arrested after pulling gun during dispute over duckSubmitted: 07/01/2016
MANITOWOC - Police have arrested a Manitowoc woman after she allegedly pulled a gun on a man during an argument over a duck.

USA Today Network-Wisconsin reports the 69-year-old woman approached her neighbor on Wednesday evening in attempt to show him that she didn't have his duck.

Police said she told the man to search her garage so he would know the duck wasn't on her property. She then drew a pistol from her shirt pocket and pointed it at the man's stomach.

The man disarmed the woman and pushed her to the ground. She later told police that she knew the gun was loaded and the safety was off.

She was arrested on suspicion of reckless endangerment and carrying a concealed weapon.
