Guy Makes Finger-Gun Gesture, Gets Arrested, & Fined

Making a finger-gun hand gesture can land you jail, just ask Stephen Kirchner.

The 64-year-old got into an argument with a neighbor and at the end make the familiar hand gesture using his thumb and index finger to create gun. The neighbor called police claiming to feel ‘threatened’ and police responded. Kirchner told a judge there was “no danger to the victim or to society,” but that judge disagreed. In fact the judge ruled the finger-pointing “risked an altercation” and constituted a crime. Kirchner will have to pay a $100 fine, along with court costs.
