A Mankato man is charged after allegedly firing a handgun after walking in front of a vehicle.

The criminal complaint says police were called to Heron Drive and Stadium Road Tuesday afternoon. They say a female driver said she had to stop quickly when a man stepped into the traffic lane on Stadium Road. The two had a “visual confrontation.” And as the woman drove away, she heard a pop that sounded like a gunshot, according to court documents.

Court documents say police found Jarred Spencer walking on Heron Drive and saw the handle of a handgun sticking out of his pocket.

Spencer is charged with second-degree assault, reckless discharge of a firearm and being intoxicated while carrying a gun with a permit.
