    Bridgewater Police

    Police say they had to struggle with a drunk man to take his gun from him when they were called to a bar Wednesday in Bridgewater, Massachusetts.

    David LeMeé faces a list of charges including assault and battery on a police officer. Police were called to Barret's Ale House on Bedford Street around 6:45 p.m. when a man allegedly refused to leave after being denied drinks.

    When officers arrived, police say they offered LeMeé, who appeared to be drunk, a ride home. As they were putting him in the cruiser, though, police say they noticed a gun in his pocket, which they determined he was not licensed to carry.

    According to police, LeMeé grappled with officers for the gun and threatened them. Police managed to get the gun and later found another one sewn into the lining of his coat.

    In addition to assault and battery on an officer, LeMeé is charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, threatening to commit a crime, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and multiple firearm charges.

    LeMeé was taken to a local hospital for evaluation. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.
