A Colfax man is facing multiple charges after he pulled a gun during a December confrontation with Colfax police officers outside his downtown apartment.

Dashcam footage taken during the incident and provided by Colfax Police Chief Andy Summy shows Holett pulling a pistol from his waistband during the struggle. The video appears to corroborate the officers’ reports which state Holett began yelling at police after he arrived on scene during the arrest of another man seen in the video urinating on the side of a building.

The Colfax officer approached Holett — who appeared agitated — and informed the subject he was arresting his friend for pubic urination. The officer then asked Holett if he had been drinking. The 23-year-old offered to perform a breathalyzer for the officer. The report indicates Holett appeared intoxicated at the scene. As Holett began to walk toward the police SUV, the subject quickly turned to enter his apartment. The officer then attempted to handcuff Holett.

During the struggle, Holett pulled a handgun from his waistband, appearing to be trying to point the weapon at the officer around his back and between his legs.
