When officers arrived, the man dropped the rifle and took off on foot toward the Best Buy.

Police caught up with him and arrested him without further incident.

42 year-old Joshua Grubbs was arrested by officers after they deemed his actions to be a danger to others and himself.

Grubbs is charged with disorderly conduct.

Police recovered the gun and found it to be an airsoft rifle that had been spray-painted black.
