ST. CLOUD -- A Missouri man faces criminal charges after he was arrested in St. Cloud for driving under the influence of alcohol.

Thirty-eight-year-old Elijah Sharks Jr. of St. Louis was arrested early Friday morning after a witness reported his erratic driving to the police.

The witness said he saw Sharks hit a curb, stop at a green light, and then "floor it" through the intersection. The man followed Sharks to give live updates on Sharks' location to the dispatcher.

Court records show at one point, Sharks got out of his car, yelled at the witness about following him, and briefly pointed a handgun at him.

Officers made a traffic stop after spotting Sharks in the area of 33rd Avenue South and 2nd Street South. Officers determined Sharks was showing signs of impairment and arrested him. Police allegedly found a loaded handgun in the back pocket of the front passenger seat.

He is charged with felony threats of violence, refusal to submit to a test, and DWI. Court records show Sharks has a previous DWI conviction in Missouri from 2019.
