MARION, Ill. (KFVS) - A man is accused of pointing a gun at another person during an argument in the parking lot of Pirate Pete’s.

Robert J. Czuprynski, 58, was cited for aggravated assault and taken to the Williamson County Jail awaiting his first court appearance.

According to Marion police, they responded to Pirate Pete’s on W. DeYoung Street on Sunday, June 26 for a reported disturbance involving a man with a gun.
