MILTON, Ga. — A security guard at the Crooked Creek Club and a Dallas man gave differing stories of a May 30 incident in which the guard said the man pointed a gun at him. 

The security guard said a man drove up to the gate around 7:30 p.m. When he requested the man’s ID, the man allegedly said he was with the government and the guard could not see his ID. The guard told the man he could not get into the neighborhood without showing ID. The man then showed his license, took a photo of the security guard with his cell phone and reached for a black object and pointed it at him, the guard said. The guard said he was uncertain what the black object was, but said it could have been a gun. 

When policed interviewed the driver, he said he was attempting to visit a friend, and he did not agree with the guard requesting his ID, so he took a picture. The man said when he took the photo the guard “went nuts.” He did have a pistol in the center console of his truck, but said he never took it out or pointed it at the man. The man said he did point his phone, which is in a black case, at the security guard. 

According to the report, there was no evidence of a crime, but the guard said he could gather security footage at a later date.
