A teen who pulled a gun on a man during a disagreement about a car has been given probation, but he was warned not to possess any weapons.The youth, Michael Flanagan, 18, was granted an 11-month, 29-day judicial diversion and must pay $750 for possession of a handgun while under the influence, simple assault and possession of cocaine. He was directed not to possess any weapons while he is on probation. The diversion means he can have his criminal record erased once his probation is over.According to McMinnville Police Sgt. Ben Cantrell, Flanagan had an issue with the sale of a vehicle and reportedly made threats toward the buyer.“The victim stated he and Mr. Flanagan had a disagreement over the purchase of the vehicle,” Sgt. Cantrell said.
