Boynton Beach police arrest man for brandishing firearm


UPDATE: Because of incorrect information given to The Palm Beach Post, a story published Tuesday said Jacob Scott Campbell had a warrant for murder in South Carolina.

He is not wanted for murder.

Instead, the warrant was for obtaining property by false pretense.

ORIGINAL POST: Boynton Beach Police on Monday night arrested a man for carrying a concealed handgun without a permit.

Jacob Scott Campbell, 30, was arrested in the 7000 block of Chesapeake Circle in Nautica Sound. Officers were called there to investigate a man “brandishing a firearm at multiple individuals,” a police report says.

Police say Campbell was carrying a concealed handgun in his waistband and didn’t have a permit.

Campbell was taken to the Palm Beach County Jail.
