Associated Press

ODEBOLT, Iowa (AP) — A man has been accused of threatening neighbors with a gun in western Iowa.

The Sac County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release Friday that 23-year-old Dustin Pope discharged a 9mm handgun at least twice into the air during a July 12 incident in Odebolt.

Deputies responding to a report of gun shots determined some sort of domestic dispute had occurred, but additional information was not available. Pope is accused of pointing the handgun at neighbors as they came out to help.

Pope was arrested and sent to the county jail. He faces multiple charges, including assault with a dangerous weapon and disorderly conduct. Court records do not list an attorney.

A second person was arrested at the scene, after he allegedly refused orders by authorities to leave.
