One of Utah's top gun lobbyists was arrested this week after he allegedly used a 2.5-ton Army surplus vehicle to threaten the lives of his ex-wife's family, but his lawyer insisted that he was simply "having fun in his big boy toy."
According to a KTSU report, Utah Shooting Sports Council Chairman Clark Aposhian was arrested by Salt Lake police on Monday for domestic violence. If Aposhian is convicted, he would have to give up his arsenal of weapons and possibly his job as chairman.
Police Sgt. Mark Askerlund told KTSU that a woman reported that Aposhian had driven his 2.5-ton army surplus truck onto her property.
"[He] honked the air horn, pulled into the residence, running over the lawn and almost striking her vehicle," Askerlund said, adding that Aposhian returned to the victim's home while police were investigating.
