King County prosecutors have filed weapons and drug charges against a felon with a thick rap sheet after he allegedly pulled a gun on a group of men outside of a SoDo nightclub late last month.
Nathen Tith, 31, is facing charges for unlawful display of a weapon, unlawful weapons possession, and drug possession after he got in confrontation with a group of men outside Club Republiq on October 24th.
Court records say a bouncer outside Club Republiq—at 1st Ave S and Hanford St—saw two groups of men arguing outside the club. The groups separated, but the bouncer then saw Tith walk away from his friends and up to the second group, and pull out a silver handgun.
Tith racked the slide of the gun and raised it in the air as if he was going to fire, court records say.
The bouncer shouted at Tith “not to do it,” and Tith lowered the gun and walked away from the club.
Club staff called 911 and police later pulled Tith and several other men over in a white Mercury Mountaineer.
Inside the car, police found a loaded .380 pistol in the back seat—which had its serial number “obliterated”—and a .44 calber handgun in the glove compartment.
Police also found cocaine tucked in to Tith’s left sock.
Tith was booked into jail and, it appears, was released two days later.
Court records say Tith has prior convictions for burglary, drug possession, theft of a firearm, assault, theft, auto theft, urinating in public, possession and attempted possession of stolen property, and trespassing.
