Investigation determined an argument had broken out while four individuals were in the home, and that is when a 40-year-old male uttered threats and brought out the weapon. The male then left the residence without injuring anyone.

Officers determined it was functional, and it was seized. Roulette, also known as Spike, is charged with Uttering Threats, Possession of a Prohibited Weapon, Possession of a Weapon Contrary to Order, and Fail to Comply with Probation.

Roulette remains in custody.
