Arrested: Man accused of threatening group with rifle, yells racial slurs

LAWTON, Okla._A Lawton man, accused of threatening a group of people with a rifle while shouting racial slurs at them, is behind bars.

Police arrested 50-year-old David Lomprey at his mobile home on Northwest Hoover Avenue just before 10:00 p.m. Wednesday. Authorities say it started when a man flagged down an officer saying Lomprey was intoxicated and walking around with a rifle on his shoulder, yelling racial obscenities. The man says when the officer left, Lomprey followed him home and pointed the rifle at him and his friends and threatened to kill them.

One person was able to get the gun away from Lomprey, but he apparently did not stop there. The man says Lomprey went home, got a pellet gun and threatened them again. That's when a fight broke out and Lomprey ran away when he saw officers approaching.

When police arrived at Lomprey's home, they say he threatened to send his dog on them and exited the trailer with a rifle. After a brief scuffle, officers arrested Lomprey and took him to the Lawton City Jail.

Lomprey is being held on complaints of assault with a deadly weapon and resisting a police officer.
