Orrin Hager pleaded guilty Monday to one felony count of second-degree assault.

The Hennepin County Attorney's office says Hager pulled up to a group of children last November. The children said Hager began yelling at them and then produced an AK-47 assault rifle.

Investigators say Hager told them he pulled out the gun because he thought the boys weren't taking him seriously. No one was hurt.

WCCO-TV (http://cbsloc.al/14PxTpE) reports Hager will be sentenced Feb. 26.
