Early this morning at about 3 a.m., passersby in a Main Street parking garage became concerned when they spotted a young man walking about, allegedly waving an AK-47 in the air. They called police who, as first reported by the Morning News, confirmed that, yes, there was indeed a man with an AK at that location.
They arrested 21-year-old Johnson Nguyen for disorderly conduct and displaying a firearm. Also, according to the arrest report, for possession of cocaine. Because as everyone knows, cocaine and assault weapons go so well together.
Police confiscated the AK, plus the 20 live rounds Nguyen was allegedly carrying. He was taken to Dallas County Jail.
