Document: INITIAL REPORT
Author: 52089 - CORBINO, ROCCO J
Related date/time: Jun-14-2015 (Sun.)
On 06/13/2015, at approximately 1145 hours, I was dispatched to 5314
Interbay Blvd, in reference a male who was walking around with a firearm
displayed.

Upon my arrival, Sgt R. Graham made contact with the witness (Nei
Martins) who advised there was a white male on the pier carrying a firearm,
but no other description was provided. Nei did advise their were a few
citizens afraid of the subject due to the display of his firearm so they
decided to leave the park.
After obtaining information from the complainant, Sgt R. Graham and I
began to walk the pier. Upon making it halfway, we both observed a white
male, who was later identified as George Freeman. George was actively
fishing while wearing a side chest holster containing a silver firearm
which was clearly visible. Sgt R. Graham and I immediately secured the
firearm and upon conducting a pat down check I located a gold/black fireman
in George's front waist band. This weapon was secured as well.
George grabbed his belongings and was escorted off the pier to my patrol
vehicle. Upon doing so, I confirmed George had a concealed weapons permit
and I confirmed the firearms were not listed stolen.
George was carrying a silver Smith & Wesson APT940
, 40 caliber and a black/gold Interarms MOD31P
George's car he had a black Smith & Wesson M&P 15 rifle

Inside

I explained the trespass warning to George which he advised he


understood. George was very cooperative and left the park without further
incident.
I placed a copy of the trespass warning at the district one office.
I conducted a wants/warrants check on all parties which met with negative
results. No further action at this time.

The following sworn statement was provided by George Freeman who did not
wish to provide his phone number.

George stated he is part of an open carry group and recently joined the
group online at meetup.com. George stated he came to the park today to meet
with someone who he just met online. George planned on fishing and getting
to meet new people. George advised he did not have any intentions on
causing harm to anyone, but just wanted to express his right to open carry
his firearm while fishing.
George stated he has been at the park for the past hour and was with a
white male who he knew as Rob. Rob was also open carrying his firearm, but
left just prior to the police arriving on scene. George stated he has only
had his concealed weapons permit since late 2014 and just started
expressing his rights.
