Garden City man Tased, arrested after road rage assaults

June 6, 2013 

— A Garden City man is facing eight separate charges after a string of Wednesday night incidents police described as “bizarre.”

Gary Raymond Brenner, 38, allegedly took part in a road rage incident on Chinden Boulevard Wednesday evening. Both cars involved ended up pulling into the parking lot of a Jackson’s Food Store on Chinden Boulevard, where police say Brenner assaulted three separate people before fleeing in his car.

The victims were not seriously hurt, police said.

Officers searching for the suspect found his vehicle near 38th Street and Adams Street, but could not find Brenner.

Police responding to a disturbance call later Wednesday night found Brenner reportedly trying to flee in his car. When he was stopped, the man challenged officers and did not obey commands, police said.

Brenner was shot with a Taser and arrested. Police said he had been the source of the disturbance - threatening several people on 37th Street and getting in at least one fight, leaving him with injuries to his face.

The suspect also appeared intoxicated and had open cans of beer in his car, police said. His blood alcohol content was measured at .12.

Brenner was taken to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center for treatment before being booked into the Ada County Jail.

He faces a felony charge of intimidating a witness, two misdemeanor counts of battery, and misdemeanor charges for assault, DUI, open container, disturbing the peace, and resisting arrest.

Brenner is scheduled for an initial court appearance Thursday afternoon at the Ada County Courthouse.
