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.
