CUMMING, Ga. (AP) A man carrying a gun in a holster prompted parents at a children's baseball game to halt play and round up the children behind a dugout, but authorities say no crime was committed.

Parents and others at the Forsyth County park north of Atlanta flooded the 911 center with 22 calls about the man Tuesday evening.

Parent Karen Rabb tells WSB-TV that the man was asking people if they saw his gun, saying there's nothing anyone could do about it.

Forsyth County sheriff's deputies questioned the man, and found that he had a valid gun permit. Authorities said that since the man made no verbal threats or gestures, they couldn't arrest him.

Sheriff Duane Piper said the man had the right to carry the gun, but called his conduct inappropriate.
