BIDDEFORD, Maine (AP) - The manager of a Biddeford barber shop has filed notice of his intention to sue the city and an off-duty Westbrook police officer he alleged pulled a gun on him and pushed him through a plate glass window.

At attorney for Brian McMahon has sent a notice of claim to the city, an initial step before filing a lawsuit.

McMahon says the officer pulled a gun and pushed him during a confrontation March 17. McMahon wasn’t injured.

McMahon tells the Portland Press Herald (https://bit.ly/1CXKA5G) the dispute started when he went to open a car door for someone he thought was his girlfriend, but it was the wrong car. The off-duty officer said he was protecting his wife against someone behaving erratically.

City officials say the claim is premature because investigations are not complete.
