A 73-year-old Ivins, Utah man was arrested and charged with felony aggravated assault and felony discharge of a firearm after alleged firing a gun at a group of teens he thought were driving too fast. The man told police that he chased the car driven by the teens because they were "driving fast and kicking up dust and rocks."
The teens told police the man pulled up behind them when they parked their car at their house. According to the police report "the driver of the van opened the door, ordered the juveniles onto the ground, and then shot a round into the ground. The juveniles ran into the house and the man proceeded to follow with the pistol still in his hand."
The man was not able to get into the house and eventually left. He was stopped by police a short time later. Two guns were found in his car, including the .38 special that had just been fired.
Utah is one of the 26 states in this country that do not require any sort of permitting process or firearms training in order to carry a gun in public.
