A Birch Bay landlord was arrested after allegedly putting a gun to the head of his tenant’s mother.

Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) deputies responded about 6:45 p.m. January 14 to a woman reporting she was helping her son move out of his home on Halibut Drive in Birch Bay when the son’s landlord began a confrontation that led to the landlord allegedly holding a gun to the woman’s head, WCSO public information officer Deb Slater wrote in an email to The Northern Light.
