Man arrested after reportedly pointing guns at motorists in Duluth

A Duluth man was arrested for allegedly pointing two handguns at vehicles as they drove by Wednesday along West Third Street in the city's Lincoln Park neighborhood.

Duluth police were called to the 3100 block of West Third Street at 11:41 a.m. on two separate reports of a male pointing two handguns at vehicles. While en route, officers were told the suspect boarded a DTA bus heading west. Officers and the Minnesota State Patrol stopped the bus near 35th and Grand avenues.

Police arrested Joseph Michael Bonneville, 33, and found two handguns in his possession. One was identified as a BB gun and one as an airsoft gun. Bonneville was arrested on suspicion of making terroristic threats, disorderly conduct and possession of a BB gun in a public place.

While at the St. Louis County Jail, Bonneville became disobedient and aggressive with officers. He reportedly spat in one officer's face, and as a result now faces an additional charge of fourth-degree assault.
