A California security guard who pulled a gun on an Apple engineer for running over a traffic cone as he was trying to exit a shopping mall parking lot is facing a civil lawsuit seeking damages in part because the mall guard wasn’t even licensed to be carrying a gun.

Nicholas Buchanan, 27, an Apple engineer who resides in San Jose, is seeking damages for inflicting emotional distress, assault, false imprisonment negligence and violation of the “Bane Act,”which alleges a cop violated someone’s constitutional rights by threats or intimidation.

“This is serious business when someone stares you down with a .45 on a Saturday afternoon. He was totally out of control,” explained Richard Alexander, Buchanan’s attorney. “Nothing he did was out of the ordinary other than pulling over a traffic cone.”

“The security guard considered that a capital offense.”

A police report established Francis Abraham-Lancaster Fielding as the security guard whose license and firearms permit had expired six months beforehand.

Buchanan was invited to the mall as a business guest, but got held up in a jam of cars exiting the parking garage.

Neither Westfield Valley Fair Mall or Security Risk Management Inc. are available for comment about their policies regarding employee weapons licensing.
