Boise man arrested after waving handgun at teens

 

The Canyon County Sheriffs Office says a man was arrested this weekend, after he reportedly waved a handgun at a group of juveniles.

Deputies arrived around 10:45 Friday night at Haunted World on N.Side Blvd and on-site security personnel said a man had been detained after he brandished a handgun at multiple juveniles, following a verbal dispute that had happened earlier in the evening.

As sheriff deputies interviewed the suspect, identified as Joshua Lockner, of Boise, he admitted that he had pulled a handgun after becoming upset with the juveniles following an argument.

Deputies also reported that Lockner was slurring his words and appeared to be intoxicated at the time of the interview.

Lockner was taken into custody and booked into the Canyon County Jail on five counts of felony Aggravated Assault and one count of carrying a concealed weapon while under the influence.

He’s scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday.
