A Grand Forks man is facing felony charges after he allegedly pointed a gun at someone downtown Saturday night, according to court documents.

Richard Richardson, III, 26, allegedly pointed a pistol at someone near 10 N. Third St., which is home to Level 10 Lounge and O'Really's Irish Pub, around 11:45 p.m., court documents said. Lt. Derik Zimmel said he believed the incident didn't happen inside a bar.

Richardson is facing a felony charge for terrorizing and a misdemeanor charge for having a firearm inside of a business where liquor is sold. If convicted he could spend up to five years behind bars.

Richardson is scheduled to enter a plea Nov. 19.
