A man told police, that while stopped at the intersection, the driver of an SUV pointed a black handgun at him. The victim told officers he sped off only to be followed by the driver of the SUV.

The SUV driver, identified as 23-year-old Bradley R. Krueger, was charged with first and second degree assault and reckless endangerment. Officers found a black BB gun in his vehicle that resembled a semi-automatic handgun.

He was taken before a court commissioner and released on his own recognizance.
