HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - According to a warrant issued earlier this month, a City Magistrate put a man in fear for his life after pulling a gun on him.

Daniel Cranor, a Huntsville City Magistrate turned himself in to police Thursday for a menacing charge.

Due to Cranor being a City Magistrate, his case had to go to the County Magistrate for processing.

He reached out to WAFF, claiming that he responded in self-defense to this situation. Cranor said his truck was blocked in by the man and he was not allowed to leave.

Cranor was released from jail on a $300 bond and is currently still employed by the city. Cranor believes the charges will be dropped.
