YARNELL, Ariz. (AP) — Yavapai County Sheriff’s officials say a Yarnell man has been arrested for allegedly firing a gun out of a moving car on Highway 89.
They say 24-year-old Zane Winther was taken into custody Monday and remains held without bond on suspicion of endangerment, weapons offense, assault and threatening. Winther’s mother says he was a passenger in her car and was intoxicated when he began waving the handgun and threatening to shoot someone.
The woman told authorities that Winther fired a round through the windshield of her moving car and she called 911. Sheriff’s deputies say Winther was disorderly and made threats toward them as they tried to arrest him.
