A fully loaded Smith and Wesson with one in the chamber was found on Nicholas’s person when he was frisked by Officers. Paul Siegel told Officers that he was working security when Nicholas came from behind him and reached for Siegel’s weapon.

Siegel stated that he felt as if Nicholas was going to use a weapon against him. When Officers arrived, Nicholas was being aggressive and threatening them. They observed Nicholas to be visibly impaired.
