Threats allegedly made

Joshua Smith, 42, of Grand Junction, was cited on suspicion of disorderly conduct and harassment after he allegedly threatened to “run over” bystanders Saturday in the 400 block of Main Street, which was closed for a parade.

Main Street was closed when Smith allegedly backed up his vehicle and yelled at people to “get out of the way” while making threats to bystanders, according to a Grand Junction police summons.

Smith allegedly told officers he was trying to get to work, while claiming officers didn’t have authority to detain him, according to police.

Air-soft gun confiscated


Jesse Knight, 20, was cited on suspicion of unlawfully discharging a firearm after witnesses Sunday reported a man shooting a gun off the pedestrian bridge at the Colorado River near Eagle Rim Skate Park, 349 27 3/8 Road, according to a Grand Junction police summons.

Smith was allegedly found in possession of a “1911”-style Air-soft pistol, which was spray-painted black, according to the summons.
