WATERLOO – A Waterloo man was arrested over the weekend after he allegedly threatened a woman with a gun.

According to court records, the man called the woman a snitch and pulled out a shortened .22-caliber rifle because she had talked to an officer about an unrelated matter shortly before 4 a.m. Saturday at the Motel 6 on Logan Avenue.

When the woman phoned police to report the threat, the man called her a snitch for going to authorities.

Officers arrived a short time later and found 28-year-old Devonner Lamont Coleman in a vehicle in the parking lot. Police also found a backpack containing the weapon and more than 42 grams of marijuana.
