A rural Saline County man was arrested Thursday after allegedly brandishing a rifle during an altercation involving a partially blocked driveway.
Saline County Undersheriff Roger Soldan says that 39-year-old Michael Torrence arrived home at around 3:30 in the afternoon to a house he is renting in the 1800 Block of Rosehill Road in rural Saline County south of Salina. A truck and trailer being used to help harvest wheat was partially blocking the driveway.

Torrence parked his motorcycle in the area of the farm vehicle and walked to the house. He returned with a rifle and allegedly pointed it at the man.
Torrence was arrested on charges that could include aggravated assault. His rifle, a Ruger Mini-14 was confiscated.
No one was hurt in the incident.
