Noise Disturbance Leads To Gun Charge

Last updated on Monday, April 23, 2012

(BLOOMINGTON) - Samantha Frazier, like so many this week, was not pleased about the noise coming from a nearby apartment on West First Street.

Frazier, 21, went upstairs to confront her neighbor, 56-year-old Maureen Pickering.

Bloomington Police Lt. Bill Parker say the two women were arguing when Pickering's son, Steven Pickering, 25, suddenly appeared with a gun.

Parker says Steven Pickering pointed a loaded, Taurus .38 caliber revolver at Frazier and told her to leave. Frazier did and called police.

Steven Pickering told police he had waved the gun but not pointed it, however, witnesses corroborated Frazier's story.

Steven Pickering was arrested for pointing a firearm, which is illegal within city limits.
