GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. -

 A Colorado man who police say pointed a toy gun at an officer and called it a Halloween prank is facing criminal charges that prosecutors are calling "felony stupid."
    
Police say 29-year-old Patricio Preciado pointed a toy gun in the face of Grand Junction police Officer Cody Kennedy early Friday. The Daily Sentinel reports that the officer said he drew his handgun as Preciado laughed and said it was a joke.
    
According to the officer's arrest affidavit, Kennedy "told him it wasn't funny and that I had almost shot him."
    
Preciado faces charges of attempted robbery and felony menacing. He was released on bond Friday, and a number listed for him was disconnected. His attorney didn't return a message left at her office Saturday.
