Sioux Falls man arrested after threatening to shoot customers at bar

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – A Sioux Falls man is facing numerous felony charges after police say he threatened to shoot people in a bar and revealed he was armed.

Police are recommending charges of making terrorist threats, possessing a gun in a bar, possessing a gun while intoxicated and disorderly conduct.

Thirty eight year-old Michael John Bruce had a blood alcohol level of .30 when he was arrested Tuesday night. That’s more than three times the legal limit to drive.

Sioux Falls police spokesman Sam Clemens says when Bruce revealed his gun, a bartender called police and began escorting customers out of the bar. Police arrived and made the arrest.
