KIMBERLY • A Kimberly man has been accused of pointing a rifle at a man and woman in the 600 block of Main Street in Kimberly.
On Thursday at about 8 p.m., the two told police their neighbor, David L. Crumrine, was talking outside in his underwear, a police report states. The woman said she told Crumrine he should not be outside in just his underwear, since her two daughters were playing nearby, the report states.
According to the report, Crumrine returned to his home, then came back outside wearing a pair of shorts. He then allegedly pulled a large gun from his vehicle, the report states. Police later identified the weapon as a Colt M4 Carbine .22 caliber long rifle.
According to the report, the woman told police Crumrine pointed the rifle at her and the man and said, “Oh look at you, you’re scared.” Then, the woman said Crumrine attempted to get his dogs to attack the two, which they didn’t, the report states.
As the officer at the scene spoke to the two, Crumrine came back outside.
The officer then drew his weapon and told Crumrine to put his hands in the air. According to the report, Crumrine complied after several commands, but was not entirely cooperative. Eventually the officer got Crumrine handcuffed and put him in the patrol car.
Later, the officer spoke to Crumrine’s wife who told him he bought the gun earlier that day.
“While en route to the jail, Crumrine kept telling me that he was going to find out my number and shoot me with his big rifle,” the report states.
Crumrine was charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and held at the Twin Falls County Jail on $25,000 bond. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Friday.
