Man in Custody After Threats at Carson Olive Garden

By  | 

CARSON CITY, Nev.-- Deputies in Carson City still don't know what led a man to threaten employees at an Olive Garden Sunday night.

According to a sheriff's sergeant, 56-year-old David Lane went into the Olive Garden on South Carson Street and started to complain about the food. When he was confronted by a manager, Lane allegedly pulled out a gun and started to make threats.

A chef heard the commotion and came forward. He told Lane he was going to call the police if Lane did not leave. Police say Lane then racked a round into the chamber of his semi-automatic pistol.

He proceeded to walk around the restaurant and into the kitchen, eventually leaving through the front entrance without firing any shots or injuring anyone.

A witness was able to get the suspect's license plate number before he sped away.

The plates came back to Lane, who lives in neighboring Douglas County. Deputies went to Lane's home, where they say he resisted arrest. When he was detained, police say they found the handgun inside his waistband.

Lane was transported back to Carson City where witnesses positively identified him.

In Carson City, he is charged with burglary with a weapon (a felony with $40,000 bail) and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon (a felony, $20,000 each bail). In Douglas County, he is charged with resisting arrest and carrying a concealed firearm without a permit.

He is in a hospital, being treated for wounds he got while allegedly resisting arrest.

Lane is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, July 24, 2013 at 9:00 a.m.

Officials say Lane has an extensive criminal history.
