A man accused of pointing a loaded revolver at another man at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting inside a Cass City church will be examined to determine if he is mentally competent to stand trial.
John R. Dillon, 74, of Tuscola County’s Almer Township faces 10 criminal charges in connection with the Sept. 5 incident at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 6820 Main, in Cass City.
Dillon “put a gun in someone’s face and threatened to shoot him,” said Trooper Ruth Osborne of the Michigan State Police post at Caro.
Osborne alleges Dillon also pointed the gun at a man’s back before handing over the weapon to one of the A.A. group members.
From the story’s comment section: This is so sad. If this man gets sent to prison, he most likely will never get to see his great grandchild’s first 12-steps.
(Does this mugshot look familiar to anyone else? I really think I’ve seen this guy’s face on this blog before.)
