View Comments

GREAT SCOTT TOWNSHIP, Minn. (WCCO) — A Minnesota man faces potential criminal charges after pointing a handgun at another man’s head following a fight over fireworks Thursday evening.

The St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office says that officers were summoned to a home on the 7000 block of Sherwood Anderson Road in Great Scott Township, Minn. at about 8:30 p.m.

The call came from 61-year-old David Phillips, who lived at that address and was complaining about the noise of fireworks.

While officers were en route, Phillips allegedly drove over to confront 43-year-old Darrin Lumby.

Witnesses said that Phillips drew a handgun and pointed it at Lumby’s head, threatening to kill him.

Officers later took Phillips into custody and booked him on charges of second-degree assault, making terroristic threats, and causing damage to property.

The sheriff’s office continues to investigate the incident.
