An Orange County man was arrested for allegedly pulling a gun on a repairman when the worker claimed he couldn't fix a broken air conditioner, according to a search warrant obtained by KTLA.

The incident allegedly occurred on Aug. 27, when a repairman went to the home of Babak Heravi in the 2100 block of Salt Air Drive in unincorporated Tustin, the document showed.

At some point, the repairman allegedly told Heravi he did not have the tools needed to fix the unit and would have to reschedule the appointment, the records indicated.

According to the repairman, Heravi allegedly pulled a small-sized silver automatic pistol from his right pocket and said, "I'm not letting you leave.  See this you're not leaving," the warrant stated.

The repairman stated he ran to his car and called for help.

The Orange County Sheriff's Department SWAT team responded, surrounding the home and ordering Heravi to come outside.

Heravi was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and later released on bail.

The case was handed over to the Orange County District Attorney's Office.

No charges have been filed.
