A Boiling Springs town commissioner has been charged with pointing a gun at state troopers.

The Shelby Star reports that troopers were responding to a call at around 10 p.m. on July 12 when 54-year-old John C. Glenn shined a laser light at them.

Authorities say Glenn then drove to his nearby lumber business. Troopers say they arrested Glenn there and found a gun with a laser sight in his car.

Glenn was also charged with driving while intoxicated after authorities found an open alcohol container in his car.

Court records show Glenn is due in court July 26. It wasn't known if he had an attorney.

The town's website says Glenn has served three terms as a Boiling Springs town commissioner since 1998.
