Man Arrested After Allegedly Pointing Gun At Driver

LEBANON, Ore. — Police said a man is facing several charges after being accused of pointing a gun at another driver on the road.

Lebanon police officials said it happened on Highway 20, just north of town.

Lebanon police said they got the call just before 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 19.

The caller told police that a man in a red Ford pickup truck was following him and driving recklessly.

“The person eventually passed them side by side. They saw that the person in the truck pointed a small semiautomatic pistol at them and then continued driving,” said Officer Timonthy Trahan. “They did exactly what anyone should do, they called 911 immediately.”

Police said they arrested 41-year-old Kerby Newman, a short time later.

They arrested Newman at South 5th Street and Maple Street.

Newman was arrested on charges of unlawful use of a weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm, pointing a fire arm at another and recklessly endangering.
