PLATTE CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The Platte County Sheriff's Office and the Missouri State Highway Patrol say they arrested an Idaho man who witnesses said was pointing a gun at traffic along Interstate 29 north of Kansas City.

Authorities say they have not received any reports of the man firing shots at traffic. Several witnesses reported seeing the man walking along the interstate with a rifle.

KMBC-TV reported the 46-year-old man was arrested Tuesday afternoon near the Tracy-Weston exit close to Platte City.

Deputies used a stun gun on William R. Elders to take him into custody.
