BOSTON (CBS) – A fight outside a Dorchester bank that began over a lack of coronavirus social distancing led to weapons charges against one man.

Boston Police were called to the Citizens Bank on Washington Street Tuesday just before 1 p.m. They spoke to several people who said that while they were in line, an argument started with another customer who refused to adhere to social distancing policies.

When the man was asked to move away, he allegedly flashed a gun and pointed it at others in line.

The man and another woman drove off before police arrived. After receiving a description of the car, officers were able to find the driver and woman on Whitfield Street.

Officers searched the vehicle and found a loaded Bersa .380 semi-automatic weapon.

Ricardio Pantojas, 40, was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, carrying a loaded firearm on a public way, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

  2. Jack McCready says:

    Only somebody from Massachusetts would take a $100 pistol to a gunfight.

    1. VendicarDecarian says:

      Only a TrumpTard loser would bring a gun to a bank line.

      1. Kevin Provance says:

        No, sir. It’s democrats who pull guns and shoot people when they don;t get their way. He’s also mexican, and probably an illegals, which automatically makes him a democrat. Not try, Dementia Joe rape supporter.

        low IQ – democrat

        Marky, I am superior to you in every way imaginable L M A O

      2. Mark Williams says:

        smarter than—-YAWN Just another ignorant , criminal, subversive repuke who has no idea how perverted he/she/it is. Ugly, ignorant trash-but then it is a repuke-how could it be otherwise. You better get back to that line at the foodbank turdo-you might lose out on the chance for some free food! hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  5. Concerned Citizen says:

    wow – that’s a ton of criminal charges (4) and might even be felonies. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims grievously injured in this unconscionable act of non-violence. The irony is that simple armed robbery would have probably have been less jail time and wouldn’t have had to wait in line for his banking services.

  6. Harry Lightning says:

    They forgot to charge him with being in the country illegally.

    1. Oh Ellinas says:

      If he were legal he’d be still be locked up in jail right now.

  7. DAC4ever says:

    Was he properly masked .. or did he have to remove his baseball cal/hoodie to get in ??
    No se que pasa..

  8. iklwa says:

    One can only wonder if he was illegal?
    It would appear that all of the Leftist gun control measures, including common sense universal background checks, didn’t work in this case.

    Wait a minute!
    I have an idea. Let’s just ban all firearms from everyone’s possession.

    I’m betting the Governor will come out with this plan tomorroww.

  9. Daughter of Mothra says:

    Ricardio Pantojas, sounds like a dem dreamer all right.

    1. NAH! He was going into the bank which means he has an account here. An illegal wouldn’t. He’s one of YOURS-maybe even one of your tricks from last night. I bet you’re just mad cause he didn’t pay you.

      1. North Linkter says:

        You are wrong. Banks love illegal aliens and their money. Please educate yourself.

      2. markiseffeminate williams says:

        marky williams is obviously a violent democrat L M A O

      3. Mark Williams says:

        @markis–shut up turdo or I’ll get your food stamps stopped. Don’t look for the repuke party to help you with food. It has no heart-just like you-no brains either. Have you had your repuke corona virus yet turdo?

  10. So his little macho display is going to cost him some time in jail. What is the mandatory sentence foe an unauthorized firearm in the state of Massachusetts? If he is in the country ILLEGALLY he may be asked to leave.

  11. TOPTRUTH says:

    YOU ALL NEED TO WAKE UP. THEY HAVE YOU , BY DESIGN, CORRALLED. YOU PICK THE CORRAL, GET IN IT, AND BLAME THOSE IN THE OTHER CORRAL. WHILE THE CREEPYPARASITESWATCH YOU ND LAUGH. IT IS CONTROL 101. YOU DONT EVEN KNOW WHO THE REAL ENEMY IS…AND IF YOU WERE TOLD, YOU WOULD TWIST IT INTO SOME RACIST PC BS, INSTEAD OF WAKING YOUR FOOL DERRIERES UP. ILL TELL YOU THIS YOU BETTER RESEARCH THE NOAHIDE LAWS, CAUSE , THEY WILL BE IMPLEMENTED , ON BOTH CORRALS, AT SOME POINT .
    PENALTY FOR VIOLATING;;;;;BEHEADING.

  12. amp1776 says:

    The guy is obviously a psycho who should be locked up, but it is not illegal to have a gun and ammunition on a public way. The 2nd Amendment says any such law is itself illegal. Notice how it didn’t work either. All this unconstitutional law did was make “law abiding” citizens vulnerable to a psycho.

  13. Robert Brooks says:

    Many people are on edge right now…Watch your P’s and Q’s…Or, carry TWO guns…Make sure you have rounds chambered and safety off…Good shooting; you’re all jabronis anyway!

  14. Carter Gwynn says:

    It is OK. Gunman was an illegal alien.

  15. This thing is exactly what the left wants to happen. Group against group, people against people. Total distraction while the corrupt bureaucracy and leftist politicians go on their merry way.

  16. Rich Pope says:

    They should take away his right to own a gun if he’s going to misuse it in this manner.

  17. CommonSense says:

    The guy with the gun should plead self defense. The one not social distancing could be endangering the lives of those around him. Many could die because of the “victim”.

  18. A J says:

    History will not remember “president” Trump or the GOP kindly at all – they will be a cautionary tale for future generations about how ignorance and the denying of science can destroy a nation and kill people, Trump really is the most incompetent President this nation has ever had known. TRUMP.. UNSTABLE NON-GENIUS NARCISSIST KNOWN LIAR! …” HE’S IMPOTUS FOR A REASON. “COME NOVEMBER AMERICANS WILL REMEMBER!” 45 will sacrifice millions for his personal gain.
    Your president wants all the authority, none of the responsibility. Trump Death count keeps going up daily!

    1. Mark Williams says:

      Excellent post AJ-but the russians and the trumptrash will be on you pretty quick-but what you sayo is totally correct-and insightful. Thanks for posting.

        history will remember mark williams as an effeminate loser
