DOJ: Man sentenced for pulling loaded gun on friends at bus stop

27-year-old faces 70 months in prison for being felon in possession of ammunition

MADISON, Wis. - A man who pulled a loaded firearm on acquaintances on Madison's east side was sentenced to federal prison Tuesday, according to a state Department of Justice release.

Christopher Glasper, 27, was sentenced to 70 months in federal prison for being a felon in possession of ammunition, officials said. Glasper pleaded guilty to the charge on Jan. 29.

On Sept. 5, 2013, Glasper pulled a loaded firearm on two acquaintances at a bus stop on East Washington Avenue, according to the release. Glasper racked the semiautomatic handgun twice, causing a round of ammunition to fall to the ground. Then he fled, but later gave Madison police officers permission to search his nearby apartment. The officers found a box of ammunition matching the round found at the bus stop.

The lengthy sentence was given because of Glasper's long record of serious violence against numerous female victims and because he attempted to obstruct justice by having a friend falsely claim to a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agent that the ammunition found his Glasper's apartment was his.
