Guns & Alcohol Don’t Mix, v.1

Or more precisely, guns, alcohol and CCW permits don't mix. This guy was from Ohio, but the incident took place in Seattle:
On 06/05/09, at approximately 7:00 p.m., a suspect was at 60th AV SW and Alki Av SW with a female friend, when he got into a confrontation with a group of juveniles (young teenagers — middle school students). The suspect hurled profanities at the teens and pulled up his shirt to display a holstered handgun, frightening the juveniles and many onlookers. Officers arrived on scene and quickly located the suspect at Alki & 63rd SW.  Officers recovered a .357 magnum revolver from the suspect’s waistband. He appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, and was also carrying a flask of whiskey. The suspect, produced a US Army ID, identifying him as an active duty sergeant, and a CCW permit issued by the state of Ohio.

And here I thought we were told all CCW permit holders are law-abiding citizens. This one was booked into the King County Jail for “unlawful carrying/display of a weapon.”
