Police arrested a man accused of pointing a gun at his neighbors Sunday morning over a child’s bat.

Officers responded to the 6100 block of West 11th Place around 10:45 a.m.

According to an arrest report, Jacob Rucker went to confront his neighbors about a bat he says was stolen from his girlfriend’s child. Police say Rucker pulled out a semi-automatic handgun during the confrontation and pointed it at someone. They say he fled the scene back to his home when he learned police were on the way.

When officers arrived, they say they found Rucker at his home and issued a search warrant. They say they located a loaded gun in the bedroom.

Police say Rucker has also been identified as a suspect in a fraud investigation that occurred on Tuesday at the Burger King near East 71st Street and Riverside Parkway.

They say Rucker is an associate of one of the employees that set up a theft during the bank drop and is accused of stealing more than $1,000 at gunpoint.

Rucker was arrested and booked into the Tulsa County Jail for pointing a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm and grand larceny. He is being held on $5,400 bond.
