A man gave two tickets to the gun show to police officers who were investigating a report of a firearm in Massachusetts this week, according to a Northampton Police Department report.

Police were dispatched to an apartment Monday after they were told a man might have a gun, the report states. Officers found the man, who was not identified, and a woman — who were both described as “heavily intoxicated” — and asked if they knew why police had been contacted.

“I notified him that we had received a call in regards to him having a gun. [Redacted] stated that he had no guns except his biceps which he proceeded to flex,” the report reads. “[Redacted] stated that this same type of call happened about a week prior. [Redacted] advised that we could search his room and no gun was located except a water gun located on top of a small table to the right side of his bed.”


(We know!)

(It’s pretty great.)

Northampton Det. Lt. Alan Borowski told that he had spotted the man before, and said that the 53-year-old’s biceps were “all right” for his age, adding: “But he was probably bigger back in the day.”
