Emile Joseph Landry (mug shot BCASO)

An elderly man from Salesville, Arkansas has been charged with threatening to kill a little boy for walking down the street with his skateboard.

Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery says Emile Joseph Landry, 74, began yelling at the 11 year-old as the child was walking down the street.

Landry was charged with terroristic threatening after a witness told authorities Landry threatened to kill the child and told the child he had a gun and would shoot him. The witness told the deputy that Landry removed a .22 caliber handgun from his pocket and handed it to him to keep before deputies arrived on scene.

Both the witness and child said Landry did not displayed the weapon during the incident.

Landry is being held in the Baxter County jail on $10,000.

Just out of curiosity, are they going to perform a psychological evaluation on him?

I'm sure his attorney will make a motion that one be conducted.
