Woman Says Trucker Threw Beer Cans, Shot at Her with Gun


A North Dakota truck driver is facing felony charges following a confrontation with a motorist last week.

Police say that 58 year old truck driver Lynn Kouba is facing felony charges of terrorizing and reckless endangerment in addition to misdemeanor charges of possession of a controlled substance and paraphernalia.

The charges stem from an incident that occurred around 8 p.m. on Friday, August 8, in Walsh County, North Dakota.

The incident reportedly began when a motorist called police after she noticed a semi truck that was swerving on Highway 17.

The motorist also reported that the truck driver threw several empty beer cans out the window.

The woman said that as she attempted to record the truck’s license plate, Kouba pointed a gun toward her and fired a shot before leaving the scene.

No one was hurt.

Police arrived on the scene of the alleged shooting and were soon able to track Kouba to his home in Adams.

After 20 minutes of negotiation with the Northeast Special Response Team, Kouba surrounded without further incident.

Police found several firearms, drug paraphernalia, and more than 3 ounces of marijuana in Kouba’s possession, according to the Grand Forks Herald.
