POCATELLO — Two local men are scheduled for court dates over charges involving weapons.

Robert Law and Jason Scott Keller are each scheduled for jury trials, involving separate incidents in which they allegedly pointed weapons at victims.

Law, 53, was arrested on Jan. 12 by Idaho State Police following 911 calls that he, in a fit of road rage, aimed a black semiautomatic pistol on two men in a delivery truck.

Victim told ISP troopers that Law was driving erratically, nearly running them off the road, before drawing a pistol and aiming it in their direction.

Law was pulled over by troopers and found to be in possession of a black semiautomatic pistol.

After first telling officers that he had not aimed his firearm at the two men, he admitted that he “probably did” do what he was accused of, according to police records.

Law faces two charges of aggravated assault, one for each of the victims.

After entering pleas of not-guilty on April 19, he is scheduled to appear before a jury on Sept. 14.

Keller, 46, was arrested on Jan. 29 for allegedly pointing a loaded crossbow at a man who had been in front of Keller’s home in Pocatello, examining an arrow that was lodged in a light pole.

During questioning, Keller explained to officers from the Pocatello Police Department that he had diplomatic immunity as he was, at the time, working with the FBI on a case involving human trafficking.

He went on to explain that the man at whom he had pointed his weapon, he believed, was involved in human trafficking.

Keller pleaded not guilty on March 8, and is scheduled to stand trial on July 20.
