Press Release – Felony Aggravated Assault Arrest


On Thursday, August 19, 2021, at approximately 8:15 p.m., Blaine County Sheriff deputies responded to a report of a man with a gun who had threatened others at a residence on Broadford Rd.

After one and half hours, deputies’ attempts to contact Levi Scott Young, age 26 of Hailey, Idaho, were unsuccessful and he was non-compliant with the officers’ instructions.

Officers closed the road to traffic for public safety. While deputies were taking Young into custody, he attempted to remove one of the officers’ stun guns. Young was charged with two felony counts of Aggravated Assault, I.C.  18-905, and one misdemeanor count of Resisting Arrest, I.C. 18-705.

Young was arraigned in Blaine County Magistrate Court on Friday, August 20, 2021, and is currently being held in the Blaine County Detention Center on a $3,000 bond.

Officers from the Hailey Police Department and the Bellevue Marshal’s Office assisted Blaine County Sheriff deputies in this incident.
