A Hartington man is facing four felony charges following a June shooting incident in Hartington.
27-year-old Brandon L. Meyers faces two counts of terroristic threats and two counts of committing child abuse intentional with no injury. He waived a preliminary hearing last week in Cedar County Court.
According to court documents, the charges stem from an incident in which Meyers allegedly pointed an Airsoft BB gun at two people who rode past his home and shot out the window of the vehicle. The victims indicated they mistook the gun for a real firearm.
Arraignment is set in the case for Monday Oct. 25th at which time he will be arraigned on the charges. If convicted, Meyers faces a maximum penalty of three years in prison.
- Yankton Gazelles Volleyball hosted Pierre in an ESD Conference clash last night at the Summit, but fell short in three sets 27-25, 25-21, 25-22. The Gazelles fought hard in each set, and even came within a point of stealing the first set from Pierre.
Gazelles coach Chelsea Law says the team was very competitive with one of the top ranked teams in the state, but offensive errors were the main culprit for the loss.
The Gazelles, now (10-12), travel to Aberdeen on Saturday, first serve 5pm.
