Alachua County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a 17-year-old for threatening another girl with an assault rifle Tuesday night.

The girl is facing a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, said Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Steve Maynard.

A 12-year-old girl told officers the teenager threatened her with the weapon after the two started fighting, Maynard said. The incident occurred at 627 SW 60th Terrace at about 9 p.m.

The girl said she was walking with her younger cousin when the teenager confronted her. The pair fought over an accusation the younger girl had sent text messages and made phone calls that angered the teenager. Maynard said the girl and witnesses reported the 17-year-old then went to her home and came back outside armed with the gun.

The teenager told the younger girl she would shoot her, deputies reported.

The weapon, which belongs to a person at the teen’s home, is an AR-15 assault rifle, Maynard said.

Police Arrest Naked Bus Hijacker

Maybe he lost his shirt at a casino. Police in Las Vegas say they arrested a naked man who stole a beer and then hijacked a bus several miles northeast of the Strip.

A police spokesman says the man fled from a convenience store when an officer arrived to investigate a report of a shoplifter Tuesday.

The man allegedly punched in a back window of a Citizens Area Transit bus, climbed aboard, forced the driver off, drove the bus about 200 yards and then jumped off the moving vehicle.

A police officer climbed aboard the bus and stopped the vehicle. Police say the man was arrested on felony charges and given clothes and a mental evaluation.

I think that mental evaluation was definitely a good idea. lol

Man Jailed After Naked Trip to Sheetz

A Shippensburg man landed in Cumberland County Prison Tuesday after a naked early-morning excursion.

Police in Shippensburg say Brett Tyler Schatte, 21, walked into the Sheetz convenience store wearing no clothing around 2:49 a.m. Schatte reportedly ate a Slim Jim and a bag of chips and downed a bottle of Gatorade, then accosted a female customer.

According to police, Schatte approached a 20-year-old woman, pulled up her shirt and tried to pull down her skirt before the woman’s boyfriend intervened and escorted Schatte outside.

According to arrest papers, Schatte grabbed a jug of windshield washer fluid outside the store and threw it at the woman’s rescuer, then fled north on North Queen Street.

Police say they spotted the naked man a block away in the 300 block of East Burd Street, and took him into custody after two attempts to flee.
On-Call District Judge Paula Correal arraigned Schatte on charges of indecent exposure, disorderly conduct, public drunkenness, retail theft and harassment and jailed him in lieu of $2,500 bail.
