A man allegedly threatened to shoot another man and retrieved a pistol during a party for youth sport coaches.

The Braselton Police Department was recently called for the threats report on Mayors Way.

According to the complainant, he and another man got into a verbal altercation at a party held for youth sport coaches. The two had been working together on a sports program, but had different opinions on how to conduct business, according to the report.

When the complainant told the suspect he felt he was being treated unfairly, the suspect reportedly became "enraged."
