Police arrested a Hanover Township man on Thursday after he allegedly fired gunshots into the air near a tower, threatening three workers, according to the Observer-Reporter. Dwayne Bruce, 53, faces charges of aggravated assault, prohibited possession of a firearm, reckless endangerment, simple assault, resisting arrest, trespassing, harassment, and disorderly conduct.
The workers at the Crown Castle tower told police Bruce had approached
them and was acting aggressively, saying they had 10 minutes to leave
the property. The workers noted that they heard a gunshot and could see
Bruce at his home, waving the gun in the air; they counted six shots
fired in total.
According to police, Bruce is a convicted felon and not permitted to own
a firearm. During the arrest, police could smell alcohol on Bruce’s
breath, and he allegedly stated that “he probably had more than enough
alcohol, but not enough.”
Bruce was placed in the Washington County jail on $300,000 bond. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for January 23, the Observer-Reporter said.
