A Bismarck man faces two charges after allegedly pointing a gun at a deputy who was investigating a speeding complaint.


Jesse McLain, 26, was charged Friday with Class C felony possession of a firearm by a felon and Class A misdemeanor reckless endangerment.

South Central District Judge Donald Jorgensen set bond for McLain at $3,500 cash during a court hearing on Monday. The bond has been posted.

According to an affidavit from Burleigh County Sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Hall, Deputy Dustin Braun, dressed in full uniform and driving a marked sheriff’s department vehicle, went to a home southeast of Bismarck to investigate a speeding complaint. He heard a person walking toward the door and heard the sound of a shotgun action being cycled, the affidavit said. He moved away from the door, saw the barrel of a shotgun sticking out the screen door, and drew his duty weapon.

The affidavit said Braun identified himself as a law enforcement officer and ordered the person holding the gun, later identified as McLain, to drop it.

“McLain continued to confront Braun, telling Braun to drop his gun first,” the affidavit said. “Braun continued to order McLain to drop the gun and did get McLain to exit the home without the gun.”

McLain labeled the incident a “misunderstanding” in court on Monday.

According to court documents, Braun is a convicted felon due to a Ward County conviction for theft of property.

I agree, spoc... allegedly? what the heck, he pointed the shot gun.  So where does allegedly come into play?  Gotta love the spin. NOT.


Glad the deputy is okay.

$3,500 is way to low. I hope the POS gets looked up again for a really long time. Glad the Deputy was not hurt.

Little typo in the last sentence.  Article lists Dep. Braun as a convicted felon.

Why wasn't he charged as a convicted felon in posession of a firearm?  He is lucky he's still sucking air.

 So scary when a rifle is aimed at a cop!

$3500 bail for a convicted felon with a shotgun who pointed it at a police officer???  Should have been no-bail parole violation... bye bye. Some days I wonder why I go to work.

Every day I try to understand how certain judges were elected into their positions.  I think I have failed to understand
