A Boise man faces multiple felony charges after police say he shot at Ada County Sheriff’s deputies serving his father with a warrant last week.
Bryan Coy, 34, was booked into Ada County Jail on Sunday after being released from the hospital, where he was transported with unspecified injuries last Tuesday when deputies returned gunfire. He faces three felony charges of aggravated assault or battery upon certain personnel, as well as a single count of use of a deadly weapon in commission of a felony.
According to the Ada County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were attempting to serve a warrant to 65-year-old Robert Coy on Tuesday for falsifying a public document. When Robert resisted arrest, his son, Bryan, fired a pistol at deputies.
Police said three deputies returned fire, though it’s not clear how many shots were fired by either Coy or the deputies. Some neighbors at the scene of the incident last week told the Statesman they heard between 10 and 14 gunshots.

It was not immediately clear when Bryan Coy would appear in court.
