Michigan man receives probation for waving gun at off-duty police officer

25-year-old Kenneth Green of Saginaw, Michigan was driving his car last September when he stopped abruptly, which resulted in the car behind him beeping his horn. The car that beeped was being driven by an off-duty police officer who was trying to get into the post office and honked at Green to try and get him to move his car forward. The two exchanged words over the incident and Green "produced a black semi-automatic handgun and pointed it at the officer and waved it around his car."
On Tuesday, Green pleaded guilty to two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon. The judge sentenced Green to 18 months of probation. She pointed out that Green had no criminal record, including any misdemeanors or juvenile offenses, as a reason for the probation-only sentence.

  1. A Law Abiding Citizen?


    According to the articles:

    Kenneth S. Green of 2721 Wellesley is charged with two counts of felonious assault — assault with a dangerous weapon — and a single count of possessing a firearm during the commission of a felony.

    No word that he possessed a Concealed Carry License, right?

    So exactly how does possessing a handgun during a felony make one Law Abiding, eh?
