Vernal, Utah- On 4/9/23, Cpl. Randall responded to a residence in Vernal where a male reported that someone was pointing a laser into his residence.

As Cpl. Randall arrived at the home. A male identified as 47-year-old David Tell Sharp met the Officer on the porch. David asked the Officer if he had seen the lasers. Cpl. Randall said, "I had not."

While the Officer was speaking with David, he noticed that he was sweating, and at the time of their interaction was 51 degrees. Davis was talking so fast, which made him hard to understand.
