Man Pulls Toy Gun On Driver, Faces Real Guns From Troopers

By Austin Robertson. CREATED Aug 30, 2013

CARTHAGE, Mo. (AP) - A man who pointed a toy gun out a car window at another motorist found out law enforcement officers didn't think it was funny.

Carthage police chief Greg Dagnan says a motorist called Tuesday to report someone had pointed a gun out of a car while driving through Carthage.

Dagnan followed the car until it was outside city limits, when Missouri Highway Patrol officers took over. 

The Carthage Press reports patrol officers stopped the car and ordered the man out of the car at gunpoint.

When the man left his vehicle, officers found an air gun inside his car. The person who reported the gun then decided not to press charges.
