Authorities arrested a man they say threatened a protester with a stolen firearm.

The Grand Island Police Department said 42-year-old Bobby Williamson, of Alda, was arrested Tuesday on charges of terroristic threats, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and possession of a stolen firearm.

GIPD says the arrest came after a peaceful protest at the Dodge Lot City Parking lot near 1st and Walnut St.

Williamson drove by in his vehicle and pointed a gun toward a 31-year-old man participating the protest, GIPD said.

Officers located and stopped Williamson’s vehicle and took him into custody. Three guns – a .22 caliber revolver, .22 caliber rifle and a 12 gauge shotgun – were recovered from his vehicle, authorities said. The revolver was determined to have been stolen in 2018.  Additionally, roughly 30 rounds of .22 long rifle ammunition and 10 rounds 12 gauge ammunition were recovered.  None of the firearms were loaded at the time of recovery.
