City Actually Backs Off Bogus Open-Carry Arrest

Cops had a "cheat sheet" listing a law repealed a decade ago


At the behest of the mayor and police chief, Colorado Springs police will conduct an "expedited review" of the mistaken arrest of a man openly carrying a pistol at Acacia Park in July.

Barbara Miller, police spokeswoman, wrote in a release that the Mayor Steve Bach and Police Chief Pete Carey agreed that the chief will immediately launch an investigation into the 24-year-old's man July 21 arrested for an outdated law banning guns in parks.
