Road worker Franklin Stenzel told officers he was checking the Nelson Road intersection when Tiger pulled up in a truck and came "aggressively storming up." He engaged in a profanity-laced shouting match with Stenzel before threatening, "I'm coming back with a gun."

Stenzel told police he wasn't afraid initially because "Lots of people make threats like that."

But when Tiger returned with a handgun on his right hip holster, Stenzel called for help on his two-way radio. Stenzel said Tiger gripped the gun, released the holster strap and said, "I bet you'll have a civil tongue about you now, won't you?"

Stenzel told officers he felt Tiger was going to use the weapon because, "Where I am from, if you put your hand on your gun, you're drawing it."

Here's the icing on the cake!

"Tiger has run for numerous elected positions in Boulder County as a Libertarian candidate. His political history includes vying for county clerk in 2002 and county commissioner in 2004. He also served on the county's Elections Review Committee that year."

Sounds like he'd make a great "concerned citizen candidate" for the Hudson School Board this spring!
