Man arrested for drawing gun at Wobbly Barn

Police say a Norwich man was arrested Saturday night for pulling a gun during an altercation at a local night club.
At 9:30 p.m. on March 11, Killington Police and Vermont State Police responded to a report of a male displaying a firearm at the Wobbly Barn in Killington. Police say Eli Kasper, age 33 of Norwich, Vt. was asked to leave the bar earlier that evening for acting intoxicated. Kasper then returned to the bar and while being escorted from the bar by Wobbly Barn staff, produced a handgun that had been concealed in his jacket. During a brief physical altercation that followed, Kasper dropped the gun, which was secured by staff until police arrived. Kasper was lodged at Marble Valley Correctional Facility for lack of $50,000 bail and was scheduled to answer to the charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on Monday morning in Vermont Superior Court in Rutland.
