SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane police have taken a suspect into custody after he reportedly pulled a gun while inside Angel's Bail Bonds on N. Monroe Monday afternoon.

George Butrick, 32, was talking with an employee about terms of a bond when he became angry and pulled the gun. Police say Butrick did point the weapon at several people inside the business before the owner was able to calm him down and talk him into giving her the pistol.

By the time police arrived on scene, everyone except for Butrick and the owner had left the building. Police were able to take Butrick into custody without further incident.

A police spokesman says the Angel's employee was explaining to Butrick how he had broken the terms of his bail and that's when he got angry.

Butrick will most likely face assault charges, according to police.

"Bringing a gun to a bonding establishment is not the wisest thing to do in the first place," said Spokane Police Officer Tim Moses. "I already know he's a criminal and I already know his mind works that way. It doesn't surprise me about his behavior."

There is no word on what Butrick was out on bail for, though he was arrested in November for his involvement in an ATM in late October.
