A man was arrested Friday after he allegedly threatened to shoot two parking enforcement workers writing him a ticket in Gage Park on the Southwest Side.

The man confronted the city employees about 9 a.m. as they were issuing a ticket to his vehicle in the 5000 block of South California Avenue, Chicago police said.

During the altercation, the 36-year-old man threatened to shoot them if they continued to write the ticket, police said.

Officers arrived and arrested the man, police said. Aggravated assault charges are pending.
