Police say the 29-year-old had a high blood alcohol level.

The man was tracked down on Tuesday evening and first fled from the police. He was caught soon after. He had thrown the weapon into some bushes.

The gun was not his and it was not loaded.  It had been stolen from a house several weeks before. Police found more stolen property when searching the man’s home.

His future is now in the hands of the cantonal prosecutor.
