Original story:

CRIME TEAM COVERAGE: The KOLD News 13 mugshots of the month are available HERE.

The incident allegedly happened Wednesday, July 28, outside the home of Sauber's parents.

According to the interim complaint, Sauber allegedly pulled a handgun from his waistband, pointed it at a family member's chest and then waved it around at others.

The complaint claims witnesses, other family members, have been uncooperative with the investigation.

According to the complaint, Sauber told investigators he was just "messing around" with the family member, never pointed the gun at the person's chest and was only doing it to show them the gun.

The family member told investigators he and Sauber were just messing around and Sauber felt the need to pull the gun out to make sure it was secure.

Sauber, a probationary employee, was hired April 2016 and has been placed on paid leave during the investigation.
