A California man was taken into custody over the weekend after he allegedly pulled a gun on a young Girl Scout who was selling cookies.

A press release from the Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner’s office that the father of the girl, who is a minor, contacted authorities after he saw 59-year-old John Dodrill point the gun at his daughter while she was selling cookies door-to-door on Sunday.

“When the victim knocked on the suspect’s door, he opened the door and pointed a gun at her,” the release said.

Dodrill was taken into custody for suspected assault with a deadly weapon. His firearm was confiscated as evidence, the sheriff’s office said.

The Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner’s office has asked anyone with information about the case to call Officer Garcia #4162 at the Southwest Sheriff’s Station at 951-696-3000.

The Girls Scouts organization has recently come under fire from conservative activists and pundits for linking to a story articles about liberal women, including Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis (D).

Noted. So, he was taken into custody and his weapon was confiscated....he either needs to stay in jail or a mental institution, and never allowed to own a gun ever.

I'm glad his behavior wasn't legal in CA like it might be elsewhere.

this is why parents have to be so much more protective than they used to- imagine if her father hadn't been with her what would have happened!

And what is someone as unhinged as that doing with a gun? Gun control - bring it on!
