Michigan relies on dictionary definitions of brandishing

1. To wave or flourish (a weapon, for example) menacingly.
2. To display ostentatiously.

os·ten·ta·tious [os-ten-tey-shuhs, -tuhn-]
characterized by or given to pretentious or conspicuous show in an attempt to impress others: an ostentatious dresser.
(of actions, manner, qualities exhibited, etc.) intended to attract notice: Lady Bountiful's ostentatious charity.

He switched it to attract notice of the person who made him uncomfortable, therefore it was brandished.

Also wehan I'm using your example, but not trying to ride you on it. I respect the fact that looking back you may have handled it different.
