A Havelock man has been arrested on drug possession charges, after he had threatened a stranded motorist.
According to the Pocahontas County Sheriff’s Office, on Wednesday evening just after 6pm, they received an emergency call from a stranded motorist a few miles north of Pocahontas on Highway 4. The motorist stated that his vehicle broke down, and he walked up to a farm driveway to a house to get help. At that point, a male subject reportedly came out of the house, pointed a handgun in the motorist’s face, yelled threatening statements, and demanded that the motorist leave the property immediately.
