Any person who, except in self-defense, draws or exhibits a deadly weapon or firearm in an angry, rude, or threatening way, or uses it in a fight can be charged with “brandishing” by the District Attorney. Punishment varies, but the District Attorney will frequently want to impose a mandatory minimum amount of custody time as required by this particular statute (Penal Code Section 417).
