— Raleigh police said that an intoxicated man pointed a fake gun at police responding to reports of a loud party in the Brier Creek area shortly before midnight Saturday.

An officer walking around 10150 Donerail Way came upon William Roger Akers, 43, who was standing on a porch. Police said that Akers pointed a gun at the officer's face. Akers obeyed an order to drop the gun, then locked himself inside.

Once they got a search warrant, officers entered the residence and found Akers asleep inside, police said.

He was charged with felony assault on a law enforcement officer.

Officers later determined the gun was a fake.
