Incident of the day
On the morning of March 21, officers responded to the 2800 block of the beach for a disturbance reported by a City beach worker.
The City employee told officers he was trying to clean the restrooms and asked a homeless man if he could temporarily relocate.
The homeless man cursed the City employee and threatened to shoot him in the face while removing a black gun from his bag.
Officers detained the homeless man nearby who admitted to making the threat and told officers the gun was fake.
Officers placed him under arrest and located a plastic replica gun nearby in the sand. Jerry Hickman, homeless, had bail set at $50,000
