A potential gun scare proved unfounded last weekend after a group angry at being denied entry to a village bar claimed they had a weapon in their possession, police confirmed.
At about 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 21, Whistler RCMP responded to a disturbance call in the 4300 block of Sundial Place after a group of males were refused entry into a nearby establishment.
“After being denied entry an individual in the group stated that he had a gun,” police said in an email.
Mounties immediately responded, identified the relevant parties involved and after conducting a pat-down, determined that no weapons were present.
Cpl. Nate Miller with the Whistler RCMP told Pique that no charges were issued, as no actual threats were made.
