August 28, 2018

A Boise man faces criminal charges after police and prosecutors say he crashed his truck into a house, threatened his father with a knife, then tried to steal a police officer’s gun.

Harrison Grover, 28, at about 7:20 p.m. Saturday drove to a Boise home to retrieve some of his personal belongings from the house, according to Haley Williams of the Boise Police Department; she did not specify the house’s location.

When he arrived, he hit the house with his truck, Williams said. In a criminal complaint filed against Grover, prosecutors claim he broke the garage door locks then threw and broke several items inside the garage. He’s accused of causing more than $1,000 of damage, according to the court documents. Prosecutors say he then attacked his father with a knife, according to the complaint.

By the time officers arrived, Grover had fled the scene, Williams said. Police pulled him over not long after that. Police eventually arrested him, despite his attempts to resist. He tried to grab a police officer’s gun during the fight, according to the court documents, but police succeeded in placing him under arrest. He was booked into the Ada County Jail on suspicion of multiple charges, including aggravated assault and malicious damage to property, both felonies.

He is next scheduled to appear in court Sept. 17.
