Police: Gun Pointed Over Noisy Truck

Police arrested a Moundsville man after he allegedly pointed a gun at his former son-in-law while telling him to turn off his noisy truck.

David Bryan Suarez, 58, of 25 Walnut Ave. was charged with brandishing a firearm and wanton endangerment. Bond was set at $5,000.

According to the criminal complaint filed against Suarez, the Moundsville Police Department received a call at about 11:27 a.m. Saturday from John Miller, no age or address listed, reporting Suarez had pointed a handgun at his truck while he was picking up his daughter at Suarez’s house.

Miller told police Suarez came out of the residence with a handgun and warned him to turn off his “noisy” truck. Miller reported he moved his truck to the bottom of the road while Suarez continued to point his gun at the truck.

Miller’s ex-wife also witnessed the alleged incident and reported Suarez had cocked the gun and pointed it at Miller’s vehicle. During a search of the house, police reportedly found a handgun with a loaded magazine matching Miller’s description in a drawer in the living room.

Suarez was transported to West Virginia Northern Regional Jail. A preliminary hearing for Suarez will be held at 10 a.m. June 19 in Marshall County Magistrate Court.
