Police Log: Landlord allegedly pointed ‘black handgun’ at tenant; dispute over snow leads to alleged assault

Aggravated Assault

SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — Summit County Sheriff Deputies performed a wellness check on April 3 at a residence located at Mourning Dove Way. The situation involved an argument between a landlord and tenant concerning the tenant’s decision to move out.

The argument escalated to the point that the landlord allegedly pointed a black handgun at the tenant for not paying a $200 fee for leaving on short notice. It was later found that the “black handgun” was actually an airsoft gun. The landlord was arrested and booked on charges of threats of violence and aggravated assault.


On March 31, SCSD deputies responded to a reported assault on Stagecoach Drive. The incident involved two men who were in dispute over snow being blown into the road. After exiting the vehicle, the victim flipped off the suspect, and threw a snowball at the suspect. The suspect then approached the victim on the roadside, grabbed his hooded sweatshirt, pulled it over his head, and then the victim fell to the ground, according to the victim’s testimony. Minor injury to the face of the suspect was sustained from the thrown snowball.

The suspect declined to press charges, but the victim has requested that charges be filed. The charge of assault is to be screened with the Summit County Attorney’s Office.
