A man was arrested Friday after he allegedly threatened his ex-girlfriend's father with a handgun.

Matthew Marzolf, 23, of Rapid City walked into American Lawn Mower on East St. Patrick Street around 4:50 p.m.  Friday and while arguing with the man pulled a revolver, according to police spokeswoman Tarah Heupel.

After Marzolf left the business, police found him getting a haircut at an East St. Patrick Street salon. He was charged with aggravated assault, driving with a suspended license and possession of a concealed weapon without a permit. He is being held in the Pennington County Jail under a $7,500 bond.

State law requires the use of seat belts, though a driver not wearing one has to break an additional traffic law before an officer can pull them over since it's a secondary offense. Do you think wearing a seat belt should continue to be a secondary offense or should police be able to ticket someone just for not wearing a seat belt?
