LINCOLN, Neb. (Nebraska) – A 24-year-old man has been arrested after the Lincoln Police Department said he pulled a gun on another driver.

We’re told it all started last Friday, near 8th and P Streets, when a 23-year-old man was waiting to make sure his girlfriend got to his vehicle safely.

Police say Riley Scott pulled up behind him and started honking at the start.

The victim told Scott to be patient, and that’s when the gun was drawn.

LPD says Scott approached the 23-year-old and pointed what appeared to be a revolver at him.

It’s unclear what happened at that point, but officers finally reached Scott on Tuesday, near 32nd and R Streets.

They say he started running before falling over a small fence, knocking over a gun.

Scott was taken into custody while officers recovered the weapon, which was stolen in October.

Officers also found three syringes containing methamphetamines.
