Teens says elderly man threatened him with gun

SANTA FE (KRQE) – A 76-year-old Santa Fe man has been arrested for threatening a student with a gun.

Police say Allan Wheeler followed a 17-year-old student onto the campus of Santa Fe Prep because he says the teen was “driving like a maniac.”

Wheeler allegedly demanded the boy’s driver’s license and registration and when the boy said no,  he says Wheeler pulled out a semi-automatic pistol and pointed it at him.

Wheeler is a historian and tour guide for the Historic Walks of Santa Fe.

He’s charged with aggravated assault and child abuse.
