A New Jersey man was arrested after pointing a gun at a Montgomery County police officer's head and pulling the trigger only the have the gun fail. 20-year-old Reynaldo Figueroa-Ardon of Vineland, New Jersey, is charged with felonies of attempted criminal homicide of a law enforcement officer, attempted aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer, and other related charges. It happened around 8 a.m. Wednesday morning, 3/10, on Mulberry Lane in Lafayette Hill. A Whitemarsh Township police officer responded to a call of a man checking for unlocked vehicle doors. The officer saw the suspect, who began to walk away, and got out of his police vehicle. He told the suspect to stop several times, but Figueroa-Ardon refused. The officer jogged towards the suspect, grabbed his arm, and asked what he was doing there. That's when Figueroa-Ardon pulled out a gun and pointed it at the officers head. The officer said he heard three clicks, but the gun didn't fire. The officer was able to wrestle Figueroa-Ardon to the ground and waited for back up.

A Sig-Sauer handgun was recovered. It was determined that the gun had been stolen from a vehicle in Worcester Township the night before. The owner had reported it stolen. The gun's magazine was loaded, but there was not a round in the chamber. That is why it did not fire. Figueroa-Ardon was remanded to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility after failed to post $3.5-million bail. "For a police officer, even a routine call can turn deadly in moments," Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele said in a statement. "All of us in law enforcement are feeling very blessed right now that the defendant wasn't able to rack a bullet into the chamber of the stolen gun before he pulled the trigger. Thankfully, the police officer went home to his family after this very dangerous incident."

UPDATE: New Jersey police day that Figueroa-Ardon stole a vehicle in Vineland and attempted to break into a home in Downe Township earlier this week. He was taken into custody in North Wildwood. He was issued a summons under New Jersey's criminal justice reform guidelines. It is not known how he got to Pennsylvania.
