A Florida man was taken into custody on Wednesday evening after brandishing a gun and telling an acquaintance, "Let's off some cops."

The incident occurred at the Port Authority Bus Terminal as the two men were talking and smoking marijuana. The suspect allegedly pulled the gun out of his bag and uttered his threat after two Port Authority police officers walked by.

The man who was standing with the suspect became alarmed and left to inform police of what he had heard. Officers approached the suspect and took him into custody.

A loaded revolver was located.

The suspect, identified as 18-year old Hunter Lee Taylor, was booked into the Manhattan Central Jail.
