Brandishing firearms
MCL 750.234e provides that it is a 90-day misdemeanor for a person to knowingly brandish a firearm in public. Brandishing is not defined in Michigan law and there are no reported Michigan cases that define the term. Attorney General Opinion No. 7101 provides guidance and states, “A person when carrying a handgun in a holster in plain view is not waving or displaying the firearm in a threatening manner. Thus, such conduct does not constitute brandishing a firearm....”
When he tried to intimidate the person in his face by "displaying the firearm in a threatening manner." He was brandishing.

A guy in your face with a clenched fist is not a life threatening, nor is that causing major bodily harm.
