    I don't like how the article used the term "brandished". Wouldn't "he drew his weapon" work just as well and without the perception of a gun waving in the air?

    "He made it all up," Miller said.

    The Dyer man had handcuffs in his car and said he wanted to be a police officer, Miller said.

    A lot of people have handcuffs, but most people use them for different purposes...

    I remember reading something somewhere or seeing a show that featured a bad guy who really wanted to be a good guy and was commiting crimes and inserting himself into the investigation. Something about Reverse Hero Syndrome or something like that.
