COALVILLE, Utah — On the evening of Sunday, July 24, Summit County Sheriff Officers responded to a domestic violence incident involving an armed individual.
A deputy conducting a traffic stop was approached by a fast-moving car. The driver and passenger stopped and informed the deputy of an intoxicated man brandishing a handgun while demanding the victims leave the house they were renting from the suspect. The incident was recorded on the witness’s phone.
Responding deputies established a perimeter and deployed a drone. During the perimeter containment, the suspect, a 21-year-old Coalville man, approached officers in a vehicle and was safely taken into custody. It is unclear if the man was turning himself in or trying to evade police.
Further information told officers that the man’s girlfriend had fled to hide in a neighbor’s home before the incident.
Following the approval of a warrant, a search of the residences was conducted, but the firearm involved was not found. Deputies searched neighboring yards and garbage cans but did not locate the weapon.
The suspect was arrested on several charges related to domestic violence, weapons offense, and intoxication.
