(BLOOMINGTON) - According to Bloomington Police Sgt. Lucas Tate, a resident of Varsity Villas was arrested during the early morning hours Saturday after allegedly threatening his neighbors with a shotgun for playing their music too loudly.

21-year-old Colby Shiver, of Bloomington, is facing preliminary charges of intimidation with a deadly weapon and public intoxication.

Bloomington Police Department officers were called to the apartment complex at about 12:45 a.m. after a Graham's Security Patrol employee reportedly saw a man walking around with a shotgun.

When police arrived the security officers were with Shiver, who was seated on the ground near a black shotgun with the shells removed.

Shiver told police he went to complain about the noise and brought the gun for his own protection.

Witnesses told police Shiver approached the apartment and yelled to his neighbors from outside, threatening to shoot them.

Tate says the security officer told police he witnessed the suspect point the gun at the neighbor's door.

Tate says police collected the shotgun and shells as evidence.
