IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Police arrest an Iowa City man accused of drunkenly pulling a gun on someone at a strip mall, driving away, then crashing into another car.

Iowa City Police arrest Bertran Perez, 33, on Monday night near the intersection of Miami and Lakeside drive.

According to criminal complaints, he crashed his car and ran from the area. When police caught up with them, they say he appeared to be drunk, but refused a blood alcohol test.

Investigators determined that before the crash, Perez got into words with someone in the parking lot of the strip mall at 1705 S. First Ave.

The criminal complaint says that during the argument, Perez pulled out a gun and pointed it, saying, "don't f*** with me, essay," and then drove away, according to police.

Perez is charged with first-degree harassment, carrying weapons, assault while displaying a weapon and operating under the influence.

He was booked in the Johnson County Jail on Monday night.
