    Trial set for man accused of pointing gun at coach

    Published:Tuesday, September 16, 2008

    The accused has a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

    staff report

    AUSTINTOWN— A township man who has been accused of pulling a handgun on a baseball coach June 10 will go to trial.

    Dallas Lough, 64, formerly of Westchester Drive, was set to appear in court for a pretrial Monday evening.

    Mahoning County Court Prosecutor Ken Cardinal said he and Lough’s attorney failed to reach a plea agreement, and a trial date will be set today.

    Lough was charged with aggravated menacing after a 36-year-old Struthers baseball coach said Lough pointed a handgun at him a during a confrontation after he left a baseball game.

    The coach told Austintown police he and Lough exchanged words after Lough walked from the backstop toward Raccoon Road, which is when he said Lough pulled the gun.

    Lough told police that he had a gun but never pulled it from his waistband.

    Police said Lough has a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

    Cardinal said Lough has since moved to West Virginia.

    If convicted of this first-degree misdemeanor, Lough faces up to six months in jail.

    I guess he wasn't paying attention to the brandishing laws in class.

    The CCW told police he had the weapon on his side...The story never said he brandish the weapon to the cry baby...

    I would consider how long has this gentlemen has carried(CCW) and if he's done something similar in the past...

    Definitely some info missing. I agree with IfIhaveto, it could be that the coach just noticed it and tried to use his CCW against him.

    The article doesn't say where they were when this supposedly happened. All is says is after he left the game.

    If the guy during an argument decides to display a firearm whether he draws it or not if he uses the sight of it to intimidate or cause the other person to fear for his safety then he's in trouble

    If he pulled it or even pulled the shirt up to reveal it, he's hosed. But if he was (just a thought) sitting with untucked shirt in the stands, and when he rose, it hooked on the shirt and was thus exposed, then that's hard to call criminal...

    Me thinks someone is lying here and I really have the feeling it ain't the coach.

    You mean he couldn't be a first time offender. I can't see where that would have any effect on it.
