HENDRICKS COUNTY, Ind. — A Danville man was arrested after police said he pulled a firearm on his son-in-law while several children were in the same room.

Danville police and the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Department responded to a home on Heritage Drive on Thursday.

According to court documents, Garry Edwards, 69, had gotten into a verbal argument with his son-in-law in his living room. Edwards admitted to police that he had pulled out his firearm and pointed it in his son-in-law’s general direction, telling him to “get the f*** out of my house” (or something of that effect).

Three children and several other adults were also in the living room.

The son-in-law and a female relative both told police that one of the children, a juvenile male, was standing next to the son-in-law when Edwards pointed the firearm.

Investigators learned Edwards had earlier been arguing with another family member when his son-in-law intervened, according to court documents.

Edwards was arrested on two felony counts of pointing a firearm at another and criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon. He was arrested on a misdemeanor count of unlawful possession of a firearm by a dangerous individual.

In September, Edwards was deemed “dangerous” by Hendricks County Superior Court 5 and was ordered to hand over his firearms.

In the incident on December 8, a Hendricks County deputy said Edwards still had the firearm on his hip when police arrived. Police secured the gun before the arrest was made.

The Danville Metropolitan Police Department confirmed Edwards was its chief of police from 1996-2006. Edwards has not been affiliated with the department for over a decade.
