Nathan Channing was sent to Mesa County Jail in Colorado, United States after the officers mistook the fruit for a gun, the Daily Mirror reports.
Officer Joshua Bunch said: “I immediately ducked in my patrol car and accelerated continuing northbound, fearing that it was a weapon.
“Based on training and experience, I have seen handguns in many shapes and colours and perceived this to be a handgun.”
The man received a $10,000 bail charged on suspicion of felony menacing, which carries a maximum fine of $100,000 and a three-year jail term.
