Moraga police stopped a local man for speeding and unsafe driving in a residential neighborhood Saturday night, eventually detaining the 29-year-old at gunpoint.
Police Chief Bob Priebe said an officer drew a weapon for an unspecified reason after the Moraga resident was stopped for driving at 60 mph in a residential area – blowing three stop signs in the process, according to police.
“A stop was made for reckless driving and the driver was released at the scene with a citation,” Priebe told NEWS24-680. “Not enough info in report at this time to determine why (the) gun was drawn. Could be any of a myriad of things to cause that…”
The incident occurred in the area of Camino Ricardo and Corliss shortly after 9 p.m. and attracted a lot of attention from residents.
