Drunk Idaho Trump Supporter Arrested After Pulling Gun On Kids In Haunted House During Argument


A Boise, Idaho man is facing five felony charges of aggravated assault after pulling a handgun on a group of teenagers at The Haunted World in Caldwell.

Joshua Lockner, 37, was arrested after police were called to the haunted house by security.  Lockner appeared to be drunk, according to authorities, slurring his words as he confessed to brandishing a handgun at a group of teenagers in an incident caught on video.

After revealing his gun, Lockner openly threatened one of the kids, screaming at them to “put your phone down.”

“Are you drunk?” the kids are heard asking, to which Lockner responds:

“No, I’m proud.”

In addition to aggravated assault, Lockner will face a charge of carrying a concealed weapon while under the influence.

The amount of teens involved in the conflict were not identified, nor was another voice in the video who called the kids “crazy,” before Lockner brandished the gun in his belt.

Lockner will appear in court on Tuesday to be arraigned for his charges.
