Thirsty worker held at gunpoint, man has guns taken away.

June 24th.

WESTLAKE — A Sheffield Lake man never thought he’d be held at gunpoint for taking a drink from a water spigot, but that’s what he told police happened Monday.
As a result, Michael Testa, 67, of Walden Drive, was arrested on charges accusing him of abduction, aggravated menacing and using weapons while intoxicated. He posted $10,000 bond Wednesday in Rocky River Municipal Court and had to surrender the five handguns, six rifles and shotgun police found in his home following the incident.
