A vehicle at an intersection allegedly threw a large soft drink all over a woman’s vehicle and threw the cup into the roadway before heading westbound on U.S. 2.

A man requested extra patrol on U.S. 93 after telling police his brother, who was seated behind him in a vehicle, allegedly held a gun to his head. The man claimed his brother thought he had hit his girlfriend, knocking her glasses off.

They reportedly heard someone else yell, “Give me the gun.” They told police the people might be on Hawthorn Drive and headed toward Rosewood Drive.
