There's new details on a Marble Hill man who was accused of threatening several people with a gun and also trying to run over people with his truck.

Court documents show Jacob W. Cook, 20, of Marble Hill pleaded guilty on November 14 on two counts of property damage 1st degree and one count of unlawful use of a weapon.

He received a suspended imposition of sentence on the three counts, and was ordered to serve five years probation under the supervision of probation and parole with special conditions. 

According to the Bollinger County Sheriff's Office, Cook was charged in Oct. 2012 with unlawful use of a weapon, endangering the welfare of a child, assault (gun) second, assault (other deadly weapon) second, armed criminal action, careless and imprudent driving, peace disturbance, minor possession intoxicant, fail to drive in a single lane and two counts of property damage first degree.

According to Bollinger County Deputy Della Moore, the alleged disturbance took place on October 21 at a residence off of County Road 326.

Witnesses told authorities at the time that Cook allegedly pulled a gun on several people after a hayride.

And, he also reportedly crashed into several vehicles that evening. Witnesses say Cook also allegedly tried to run over people using his truck.

Witnesses told deputies the 20-year-old seemed reportedly intoxicated, according to the probable cause statement.

The probable cause statement also shows that authorities tried to make contact with Cook at his home for several days but were unsuccessful.
