Gun vs. chain saw -- that's scary

October 27, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A Baltimore police officer delivered the fright of a lifetime to a haunted house employee, pulling a gun on the chain-saw-wielding man, authorities said.

Sgt. Eric Janik, 37, was charged with assault and reckless endangerment for pointing his service handgun at the worker, who was dressed as Leatherface from "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," Baltimore County police said.

When the employee followed Janik and several others Sunday night in a bid to get "one last scream" out of them, Janik drew his gun, police said.
