GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) – Police have arrested an Alda man accused of pointing a gun at a protester in Grand Island. Police said in a news release that the incident happened Tuesday night after protesters gathered in a parking lot.

Police say 42-year-old Bobby Williamson drove by the protest and pointed a gun at a 31-year-old man participating in the protest. Police say witnesses corroborated the incident.

Police say Williamson’s car was quickly stopped, and three guns – including one reported stolen from Grand Island – and ammunition were found inside.

Police said none of the guns were loaded. Williamson faces charges of making terroristic threats, possession of a stolen firearm and a weapons-use count.
