'That's my gun,' suspect tells police after witnesses say he waved AK-47 in ... - Dallas Morning News (blog)

Johnson Nguyen (Dallas County Jail)

Dallas police this morning arrested a Richardson man walking through downtown with a loaded AK-47.

Johnson Nguyen, 21, was taken into custody shortly after 3 a.m. when witnesses called police saying that he was pointing the assault rifle into the air near Field and Main streets.

No one was hurt, and Nguyen was taken into custody without incident at a parking garage. It was unclear whether he ever fired the weapon, identified by police as a semi-automatic “Romanian AK-47.”

The rifle and 20 rounds of ammunition were recovered, and Nguyen is being held in the Dallas County Jail on a charge of disorderly conduct.

Why Nguyen had the weapon remains a mystery â€" but he was also busted for cocaine possession.
