A York man is in jail after he drove through a residential yard, ramming trees, before crashing his truck into a power line guy wire and getting out of the vehicle with a shotgun on New Year's Eve, according to Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner.

Monte Robinson, 67, was arrested on suspicion of terroristic threats and use of a firearm to commit a felony after the incident late Friday night northeast of Hickman. 

Wagner said Robinson had driven his truck toward a homeowner before wrecking it into a Norris Public Power guy wire, prompting the vehicle to catch fire. 

When he exited the truck, Wagner said Robinson was armed with a shotgun that he used to threaten the resident.

Wagner said Robinson refused to drop the weapon when authorities arrived. Deputies deployed a 40 mm rubber projectile to incapacitate Robinson, he said. 

Robinson was taken to Bryan West Campus for evaluation before being transported to the Lancaster County Jail.
