John Paul, founder of the Beaver Countian, claims that Beaver County Sheriff George David pointed a gun at him and threatened to take his life during an interview concerning financial issues (video below).
Beaver County is near Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.
Paul told WPXI-TV that Sheriff David pulled out his gun and began waving it around. He allegedly threatened to kill Beaver County Times reporter J.D. Prose and the Beaver County Prothonotary Nancy Werme, who were not there.
After the interview, Paul filed a report with the police department.
Sheriff David has denied the accusations. The two deputies present during the interview also said Paul was never threatened.
