CUMMING, Ga. – A 28-year-old man was arrested July 3 and charged with pointing his pistol at another in the Cumming Nursing Center’s parking lot.

Kristian Harris, 28, of Cumming, was charged with aggravated assault with a gun and pointing a weapon at another.

According to a Cumming Police incident report, the event unfolded about 9 p.m. when Harris drove his 2005 GMC Sierra into the nursing center’s parking lot, hopping a curb to park his truck in the facility’s grassy area, 2775 Castleberry Road.

He was approached by a nursing home employee, who told Harris to move.

Harris became irate when told he couldn’t park in the grass, the victim said.

During the encounter, the victim noticed Harris’ Smith & Wesson pistol pointed at him. The victim then stepped back and dialed 911.

Harris claimed he moved his pistol from his right side to the center console of his truck, so it would not fire when he drove over the curb again.

After he moved his gun, Harris drove across the street and waited for the law enforcement.

The police found Harris’ pistol in a shelf just in front of the center console. The chamber was empty, but the magazine was full.

Harris was charged and taken to the Forsyth County Detention Center for processing.
