Man Pleads Not Guilty To Going Postal At Islands Restaurant
A man is accused of carrying a loaded, unregistered gun into an Islands in Newport Beach and making criminal threats.The alleged incident happened on July 19 around 9:30 pm, and police told the Los Angeles Times that they believe the suspect Henry Saxon Learmont, 36, was targeting a business associate. It's not clear what sort of business the two were involved in but Learmont was identified as a "VP" in his jail records. Learmont was arrested in the parking lot of the restaurant with a loaded gun.
Okay, okay, so you can't actually be charged with "going postal." However, Learmont was charged with one felony count of making criminal threats, one misdemeanor charge of carrying a loaded unregistered gun and one more misdemeanor charge of carrying a concealed loaded unregistered gun in a vehicle.
He had a pre-trial hearing on Friday and plead not guilty to all the charges.
