HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say a man seen brandishing a gun at Black Lives Matter protesters in Alabama was arrested and accused of being drunk. 

Scott Christopher Davis was charged Sunday with public intoxication and possession of a firearm. Huntsville police were called to the protest near Courthouse Square Sunday evening on reports of a man harassing protesters.

Teddy Young with ‘Black Lives Matter Huntsville Division’ told WAFF-TV that a man approached a woman and her wife and began to insult and threaten them. Young says the man was drunk.

It’s unclear whether Davis has an attorney.
