    MEMPHIS, Tenn. - A man who police said made threats toward children at a Memphis Incredible Pizza months ago has been arrested.

    Zantarrian Ferguson was arrested and charged with reckless endangerments with a deadly weapon and evading arrest with third-party injuries.

    Police told FOX13 Ferguson was asked to leave the business back in November after threatening a group of people about stealing a phone.

    Once outside, Ferguson pulled out an AK-47 and aimed it at a bus filled with children, according to police. 

    People on the scene pleaded for Ferguson to put the gun away, but he continued to yell at the bus.

    Police said Ferguson eventually got into the driver's seat of a silver SUV and fled the scene.
