Alpine man arrested following shots fired in Etna
An Alpine man has been arrested following a verbal altercation that resulted in shots being fired at the Wolf Den in Etna. Andrew Iverson, 48, was arrested and taken into custody on Sunday, December 4 and charged with three counts of felony Aggravated Assault and Battery. He is currently being held on $200,000 cash or surety bond with a preliminary hearing scheduled for December 15.
According to court documents the incident started when Iverson was seen speeding around the parking lot of the Wolf Den after getting into verbal altercations with another man and trying to break into a trailer and vehicle. Court documents state that a witness asked Iverson to slow down, creating another altercation which eventually led to two shots being fired in the direction of the witness. The witness called 911 and an investigation ensued, resulting in the identification and arrest of Iverson. No injuries from the shots were reported to have occurred. In the court documents, Iverson suggested that the original altercation was drug related.
Lincoln County Attorney Spencer Allred stated that this remains an active investigation to determine if additional charges are appropriate.
