YARNELL, Ariz. (AP) — A Yarnell man has been arrested for allegedly firing a gun out of a moving car on Highway 89, authorities said.
Yavapai County Sheriff's officials said 24-year-old Zane Winther was taken into custody Monday and remains held without bond on suspicion of endangerment, weapons offense, assault and threatening.
It was unclear Wednesday if he has a lawyer yet.
Winther’s mother said he was a passenger in her car and was intoxicated when he began waving the handgun and threatening to shoot someone.
The woman told authorities that Winther fired a round through the windshield of her moving car and she called 911.
Sheriff’s deputies said Winther was disorderly and made threats toward them as they tried to arrest him.
A neighbor later reported finding the handgun in a field and turned it over to authorities.
