It turns out you can't be a Bourbon County (KY) man and be (allegedly) ripped at a Woodford County middle school basketball game while carrying a gun on school property. Mark West, 53, was sent to the Woodford County Detention Center Tuesday morning on charges ranging from assault, menacing, public intox, and unlawful possession of a firearm on school property, according to Kentucky.com.

Video from the middle school basketball game shows a police officer use an amazing sweep the leg method to take out West as kids run for cover into the locker room as police throw the cuffs on their man.
