Brookfield police have charged a Masury man with firearms and other offenses stemming from a report Sunday that he was suicidal and had a gun.
Police said they confiscated the handgun Ryan Gladis had in his car, as well as seven firearms he had elsewhere, which are being kept for “safekeeping.”
Police said they were called at about 6 a.m. with a report that Gladis, 31, of 1282 Standard Ave., had been drinking since about 3 p.m. the day before, had a handgun and said he was going to kill himself, police said.
Gladis drove away from a home in the 7200 block of Stewart Sharon Road and was believed to be heading to the 1200 block of Standard, police said.
Gladis was in his car when police arrived and was arrested with the help of Vienna police, police said.
Police said they found a loaded .40-caliber handgun under the passenger seat, a magazine on top of the center console and open alcohol bottles in the cup holders.
Gladis was taken to a hospital for a mental health evaluation, police said.
The other guns were taken from the home on Stewart Sharon, police said.
Police said they picked up Gladis from the hospital following the evaluation and charged him with drunken driving, using weapons while intoxicated, improperly handling firearms and carrying a concealed weapon.
Gladis was released and due to appear in court Tuesday, Dec. 18, police said.
