Loaded Gun in Bar

A Dyersville man was arrested Saturday night after police say he pointed a loaded gun at a man inside a bar. Officers were called to Joe’s 2nd Street Diner just after 10 p.m. for a report of a drunk man with a gun. Police interviewed witnesses who told them 58-year-old Brian Michael Wells was already drunk when he walked into Joe’s to use the bathroom. Wells was told to leave by owner Joseph Menge. Menge told police Wells then became confrontational and got into his face. There was a scuffle and Wells pulled a loaded .22 caliber Baretta he was carrying and pointed it at Menge’s chest and head. Wells is charged with carrying weapons, public intoxication and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.
