A 19-year-old man was accused of brandishing a handgun at a store in the 1200 block of East Texas Avenue after an employee asked for ID when he and a friend tried to buy cigars.

Baytown police spokesman Eric Freed said Dwight Sledzik, from Richmond, Texas, pulled a handgun from his friend’s pocket and waved the firearm around but did not point it at the clerk during the incident.
