Police: Man Pulls Gun During Argument

Incident happened on May 20 at the Naugatuck Motor Lodge, police said.

A Waterbury man was arrested by warrant Wednesday for pulling a gun on the family of his teenage friend last month, police said.

During an incident on May 20, at the Naugatuck Motor Lodge on New Haven Road, Lautan Gainey, 21, was with a 17-year-old girl when the girl’s parents showed up in the morning, police said.

The girl’s parents said Gainey pulled a handgun on them but did not shoot, police said. Gainey ran away before police arrived at the scene, police said.

Gainey was charged with first-degree reckless endangerment: intimidation intended; criminal possession of a pistol or revolver; carrying a pistol or revolver and breach of peace.

He was arraigned Wednesday at Waterbury Superior Court

Why is this now being made public? Why wasn't this in the news on May 21 or May 22 at the latest?

Because they didn't arrest him at the scene. They arrested him by warrant. Will make that clear in the story.
