Witnesses, according to local police, reported a Centerville man was driving in excess of 80 mph down Drake Avenue before threatening someone with a shotgun, all while intoxicated.

Tyler Scott Flahive, 19, of Centerville, was charged with operating under the influence, assault while displaying a dangerous weapon, reckless driving and possession of a dangerous weapon while under the influence.

At approximately 3:13 p.m. on Friday, witnesses reported Flahive was driving a 2002 GMC Envoy northbound on Drake Avenue in excess of 80-100 mph while driving recklessly and passing multiple cars.

Flahive came to a stop at the intersection of Drake Avenue and Maple Street, when a male and his son reported approaching the vehicle to confront Flahive about his driving, according to court documents.

Witnesses then report Flahive threatened the male with a shotgun, and the male and his son ran back to their vehicle as Flahive left his vehicle and advanced toward him, documents say.

After, Flahive drove to Farmer's Bank of Northern Missouri on Maple Street where a Centerville Police Officer stopped him.

According to court filings, Flahive's shotgun was loaded and he had ammunition in the vehicle for it. The officer said he failed field sobriety tests but a blood alcohol content was not listed in the court documents.
