SPRINGVILLE -- A man who already was suspected of firing a gun at a party now is accused of assaulting his mother because she wouldn't drive him to a police station.
According to the Deseret News, Springville police say in September, Bronson Brandt, 20, had been in a fight at a birthday party, fired a gun once, and then shot out the back window of his car as he drove away. No one was injured.
Investigators say police had been trying to meet with him about the incident. Last Friday, apparently, he wanted his mother to drive him to the police station. She refused, so police say he slammed her head into concrete. She suffered minor bruises and scrapes.
Police took Brandt into custody following a traffic stop in Orem later that day. They say he was in possession of marijuana and prescription drugs.
Brandt was booked into the Utah County Jail for investigation of drug charges, driving on a denied license, domestic violence assault, aggravated assault, discharge of a firearm in city limits and reckless endangerment.
