A lucky guess
Police arrested the driver of a black Toyota pickup on Jan. 17 after another driver alleged that the man, in a moment of road rage, pulled a silver revolver from the center console and pointed it at him as they drove down Interstate 70.
The man admitted he had a silver revolver, and that it was in his truck’s center console, but he denied pointing it at anyone in traffic. When the officer asked how the reporting party knew exactly what the weapon looked like and where it was kept in the vehicle, the man said, “I don’t know, probably a good guess.” The man was booked for menacing with a deadly weapon
Definitely not the ‘Godfather’
A man called police Jan. 18 after he found a severed rooster head in his mailbox. He told police he hadn’t checked the box for a few days and, prior to checking it on Jan. 18, he received a call from a postal employee alerting him to the unusual item. He removed it so it would not frighten his children.
He told the police he wasn’t sure if he should be afraid because someone was trying to send him a message or if it was a kid’s prank. The responding officer said he thought it might be a prank, he took the rooster head and booked it into evidence.
Drinking, guns a poor’t mix
A deputy came across a driver Jan. 28 who couldn’t figure out exactly where he wanted to go. The deputy pulled over the vehicle near Kermitt’s Roadhouse after the driver made a series of confused turns and didn’t use a turn signal. The man stepped out of his vehicle and told the deputy he drank a single wine cooler. The man started talking about a hunting trip he was planning and pointed to the rifle case in the back of his vehicle. Then the man pulled back the right side of his jacket, revealing a holstered revolver, and admitted he didn’t have a concealed-carry permit. When the man seemed to reach for the firearm, the deputy asked him to keep his hands on top of the vehicle. As the officer reached to pull the revolver from its holster, the man released his belt, causing it to fall to the ground. The deputy decided it was probably best just to handcuff him. The man was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.
