A Massachusetts man was arrested after police said he pulled a gun on a 30-year-old man outside a Walgreens because the alleged victim was not wearing a face mask inside a store.
Todd Goulston, 59, of East Bridgewater, was charged with multiple offenses following the alleged incident that occurred amid the state's coronavirus mask order. His license to carry a firearm and his guns were seized by officers, police said.
"Goulston allegedly pulled out a gun from his vehicle and pointed it at the other man, who had not been wearing a face mask in the store," according to a news release by the Bridgewater Police Department.
