They were then called to a nearby bus stop where a security guard at a bank saw Barney raise the machete at a man waiting for his bus. The man ran toward the security guard and Barney ran off. As police tased and arrested him, they say a gun fell out of his sweatshirt pocket. Police previously told KRQE News 13 that he was also brandishing a gun at Walmart staff. Barney faces charges including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
