Rochester, N.Y. - John Rendsland, of Scottsville, was arrested at the HSBC Building Wednesday night for pointing a gun at a Secret Service agent.
When police were called Wednesday, Rendsland was on the 18th floor, the same on which the Secret Service office is located.
An agent said Rendsland told him he came to the office because he was an inventor and wanted to talk to someone.
He said Rendsland became belligerent, pulled a gun from a pocket and pointed it at him.
Rochester Police officers were called to the building.
Rendsland was eventually tasered.
Court records say the gun was loaded with seven rounds.
Police officers also found his car and saw it was filled with gas tanks and a lot of personal property.
The bomb squad was called as a precaution, but no bomb was found.
At Thursday's arraignment, Rendsland, who has no priors, was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, menacing, and resisting arrest. Bail was set at $10,000 cash / $30,000 bond.
