CINCINNATI -- A Northside man pointed a loaded firearm at an undercover Cincinnati police sergeant during a drug bust Tuesday, according to Hamilton County court documents.

Douglas Tillman Brooks, 27, is charged with aggravated menacing. According to one of several criminal complaints filed against him, officers allege Brooks came out of his home on West Fork Road, walked up to the sergeant and threatened to shoot him.

The sergeant is with the Cincinnati Police Department's vice unit, according to the court documents.

Brooks is also charged with illegal use or possession of drug paraphernalia and illegal manufacture of drugs.

Officers found multiple marijuana plants and digital scales in his home when they served a search warrant Tuesday, according to an affidavit.

He was also charged with having weapons under disability because he'd been convicted of felony drug trafficking in May 2012, according to another complaint filed Tuesday.

Brooks was booked into the Hamilton County Justice Center at about noon Tuesday. He's scheduled to be arraigned on the charges Wednesday.
