MAN ARRESTED: Accused Of Pulling Gun On Kid

Posted on: 12:31 pm, May 13, 2013, by


In Iowa City, a 61 year-old man is accused of robbing a boy looking for a summer job.

Kevin Shannon faces a number of charges after police say he told a boy looking for lawns to mow he wasn’t interested, but still gave him $10. It happened around 3:00 p.m. Sunday.

Police say Shannon told the boy he was an undercover police officer and as the boy continued to go door-to door, Shannon drove up behind him, pulled a gun and demanded the $10 back.

Police arrested Shannon and, among other allegations, charged him with public intoxication and driving while intoxicated.
