Man accused of pointing gun at officers near police station

A man was charged with pointing a gun at police officers and other people near a Far South Side police station Monday morning.

Clyde Freeman, 29, was arrested in the 700 block of East 111th Street about 7:15 a.m., after people approached Calumet District officers and said he had pointed a weapon at them, according to a police statement.

The officers then spotted Freeman inside a vehicle, holding a weapon, which he allegedly pointed at police, the statement said.

He was arrested and the weapon was recovered, police said.

Freeman, of the 7500 block of South Ridgeland, was charged with three counts of aggravated assault to a peace officer, two counts of aggravated assault using a deadly weapon, and two counts of unlawful use of a weapon.

He was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday for a bond hearing.
