HOUMA, LA (WVUE) -

A 47-year-old man has been charged after police say he flashed a semiautomatic weapon in a doctors office in Houma Tuesday night. 

The Houma Police Department was dispatched to a doctor's office within Terrebonne General Medical Center in reference to a suspect, Joseph Grimm, being armed with a firearm.

When officers arrived they found out Grimm had been arguing with the office personnel over the date of his appointment.

At that point security made contact with Grimm and asked him to leave the facility and return on his appointment date.

Police said as Grimm was leaving the property he lifted his shirt to show that he was armed with and handgun, which was tucked into the waistband of his pants.

According to the report, police then patrolled the area and were able to locate Grimm and take him into custody without incident.

Officers located a 9mm semiautomatic handgun in his waist band at the time of the arrest, according to the report.

Grimm was transported to the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex where he was booked for illegal carrying of a firearm.
