A Painesville man pleaded no contest to aggravated menacing Monday in after police say in Mentor.
Michael Spalsbury, 21, was convicted and faces up to six months in jail. However, the judge did not sentence Spalsbury Monday. Instead, he opted to compile a presentence report first before punishing Spalsbury.
A "no contest" plea is when the defendant neither accepts nor disputes the charge against him or her.
On the evening of Aug. 11, a patron at the ice cream parlor saw a man seemingly urinating on the side of the building.
The man honked his car horn at the other man.
The other man -- 21-year-old Michael Spalsbury of Painesville -- seemed upset by this. He reached behind his back and said he had a gun, according to police.
Then he approached the passenger window of the man's car and threatened to shoot him in front of his 12-year-old son, who was seated in the passenger seat, police said.
Spalsbury then left the area and the man contacted police.
Police found Spalsbury at his home and arrested him.
