Maine Man's 'Gun' Turns Out To Be A Tattoo

Posted: Updated:
NORRIDGEWOCK, Maine (AP) - Police armed with assault rifles descended on a Maine man's home after members of a tree removal crew he'd told to clear off his property reported that he had a gun.
    
Turns out the "gun" the tree crew had seen on Michael Smith of Norridgewock was just a life-sized tattoo of a handgun on his stomach.
    
Smith, who works nights, was asleep when the tree crew contracted by a utility to trim branches near power lines, woke him up at about 10 a.m. Tuesday.
    
He went outside shirtless and yelled at the workers to leave. When he's not wearing a shirt, the tattoo looks like a gun tucked into his waistband.
    
Smith tells the Morning Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1l37m2f) the tattoo has never been a problem before.
    
Police didn't charge him.
