Jeremy Weber of Ottawa was arrested but he’s lucky he didn’t get shot.

While arresting David Scott of Ottawa on a warrant Sunday night, deputies say they noticed a green laser light move from an apartment to a squad car. The deputies say they next saw a man and woman behind a fence with the man holding a rifle with a green laser scope, pointing it in their direction.

When told to drop the weapon, deputies say both the man and woman behind the fence ran. Jeremy and Jenna Weber of Ottawa were both eventually caught and arrested for obstructing a peace officer. Jeremy was also picked up for aggravated assault for point the rifle at police.

The initial man being arrested on a warrant was David Scott. He allegedly skipped out on a court hearing for having open alcohol in public.

Both Weber’s and Scott were taken to jail.
