Man With A Gun Arrested

Monday at about 1:30 am Mount Pleasant Police were dispatched to 1301 East Hanes Court. Two teenagers called 911 to report there was a man waving a gun around inside an apartment.  Police determined that Michael Ryan, age 59 of Mount Pleasant was inside the apartment and that he was illegally in possession of a pistol because he is a convicted felon.  The Jefferson County TAC team assisted and deployed gas canisters into the apartment.  This forced Ryan to come out and he was taken into custody peacefully.

Ryan is currently charged with Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Assault by Displaying a weapon and Criminal Mischief, 2nd degree.  The investigation into the incident continues and more charges are pending.

Local Police were assisted by the Sheriff offices from Henry and Jefferson Counties and the Iowa State Patrol
