A 31-year-old man (not pictured) was arrested early Saturday morning after reportedly running down crowded Capitol Hill streets with a loaded handgun, according to the Seattle Police Department

According to KOMO News, police received a number of 911 calls about a man with a gun running near Broadway and East Union Street around 2:00 a.m. just as the neighborhood’s bars and clubs were closing down.

Because no one notices a crazy man with a gun standing behind a tree.

The suspect dropped a loaded gun and was arrested without incident, according to the police.

The suspect is on federal probation and was booked for investigation of unlawful possession of a firearm.

There’s more.

Another man was seen brandishing and firing a gun within the compound of the Ethiopian Embassy in northwest Washington, DC. and had to be detained and questioned by Secret Service agents Monday morning.

In a video, the man can be seen holding the gun in the air, as people around him on a plaza inside the Embassy gates attempt to talk him down. The man lowers the gun and a shot is heard. Police said no one was injured. [su_csky_ad]

    Until they patch the White House’s screen door and put a new hook-and-eye lock on it, authorities are gonna be pretty nervous about people running around the Capitol with a weapon.
