BIRMINGHAM - AL -

A man is in custody after attempting to pull a gun at an opening pee-wee baseball game Saturday. 

Moody Police Chief Hunt tells ABC 33/40 a man became irate with a coach at Moody's ballpark when the coach told him to sit down. 

The man attempted to pull a .45 caliber gun from his side after the coach told him to sit down at his son's game.

A spectator disarmed the man, Charles Moshier, and a city employee held Moshier until police arrived. 

The incident happened during a Pee-Wee baseball game among seven and eight-year-olds.  Chief Hunt says, "It could have easily turned into something worse". 

Moshier has been charged with menacing, disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia. Moshier lived in unincorporated St. Clair County with a Moody mailing address.
