GAINESVILLE, Fla., July 29 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said they arrested a 74-year-old man who allegedly pulled a gun on his roommate during an argument about the TV volume.
The Gainesville Police Department said the roommate told them Ernest Michael Chapman, 74, came into the living room while he was watching television at 5:45 p.m. Tuesday and complained about the volume, The Gainesville Sun reported Friday.
