Brighton man faces charges after threatening snowboarder with shotgun

BRIGHTON, Utah — A Brighton resident is facing charges after he threatened a snowboarder with a shotgun last month. Keith Robert Stebbings, 67, was charged with one count of aggravated assault and another for threat of violence.

Authorities say Stebbings was standing in his path while holding a shotgun when Loren Robinson, who was renting a cabin with friends near Stebbings’ home, approached him on Feb. 26.

Stebbings can be heard saying, “Private property, you [expletive],” according to authorities.

Stebbings pushed Robinson numerous times during the confrontation. At one point, he can be heard saying, “If you do it again, there will be holes in you.” Robinson admitted to mistakenly crossing over into Stebbings’ property.

Investigators found no private property signage at Stebbings’ home. The area near Old Prospect Avenue is city-owned and is used by skiers and snowboarders who backcountry ski, but they have to drive through some private drives to get there.
