Pennsylvania man’s ‘gunlike hand gesture’ toward neighbor was a crime, court rules | Fox News

Pennsylvania court ruled Tuesday that making a “gunlike hand gesture” is a crimeafter a man made the hand motion during an argument with his neighbor — an act which reportedly made several nearby residents nervous and prompted a call to police.

Stephen Kirchner, 64, made the gesture toward his neighbor in Manor Township in June 2018, according to surveillance video. Kirchner, walking alongside a female neighbor, “stopped, made eye contact with [the male neighbor] and then made a hand gesture at him imitating the firing and recoiling of a gun,” according to court documents.
