Three Buford men are facing various charges after one of the men produced a pistol during an Oct. 7 incident at Bogan Park.

A Flowery Branch man said he was in the area of the basketball courts at Bogan Park when three men approached him and began “a verbal confrontation.” According to the victim, one of the suspects pulled out a semi-automatic pistol and began waving it in the air before pointing it in the victim’s direction.
