Man is accused of pointing a shotgun at Albuquerque police
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say a man has been arrested for allegedly pointing a shotgun at an Albuquerque police officer.
KOB-TV reports that police and a SWAT team took 23-year-old Jeren Boone into custody Saturday night.
According to court documents, police were responding to reports of a domestic dispute after a woman called to say her son was extremely intoxicated and causing damage inside her home.
When police arrived, they say Boone opened the front door and pointed a long-barreled shotgun at an officer who took cover until more officers arrived.
Police say Boone barricaded himself in the house and refused to come out.
He was arrested about 2 a.m. Sunday and is being held on suspicion of aggravated assault on a police officer.
It’s unclear if Boone has an attorney yet.
