Santa Rosa police arrested a man Friday morning for allegedly brandishing a fake firearm.
Officers received multiple reports of a man with a gun near Stony Point Road and State Route 12 at about 8:40 a.m.
A 28-year-old man was allegedly pointing what looked like a gun at homeless encampments along the Joe Rodota Trail and at vehicles in the area.
Officers found the suspect on an onramp to State Route 12 at Stony Point Road. He was ordered to drop the gun, which officers determined was a replica.
The suspect was taken into custody without incident, police said in a statement. He is facing charges of openly displaying an imitation firearm in public and drug-related charges. He was booked into Sonoma County Jail.
