A man was arrested Wednesday after he threatened a secretary and threw a weighted disc through a glass window at the Fernley substation, the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office reported.

LCSO Lt. Pete Spinuzzi said a man later identified as Rick Leon, 38, of Fernley entered the Fernley substation at about 3:05 p.m. and walked up to the counter, which is protected by a glass window. Spinuzzi said when the secretary asked the man how she could help him, he responded in a threatening manner as to what he could do to her, then threw a five-pound weighted disc through the glass and walked out.

The disc narrowly missed the secretary, who was showered with shards of broken glass and other debris, causing minor injuries.
