first brought you last night... we're hearing the other side of a situation that was caught on camera between a motorcyclist and a driver. today we spoke to the driver who admits to pulling a gun - and pointed it at the motorcyclist after he started knocking on his window. the driver's defense- there is much
more in that video that you didn't see. i felt surrounded and threatened, it was an issue. the driver of this red truck told us anonymously that nearly a dozen motorcyclists were riding around him on boulder highway. you see the second three minutes of it, there's about 3 or 4 minutes of what they didn't show you of all the motorcycles being erratic and causing issues in traffic. one of our guys went off the dirt the rider who filmed the incident and also wants to remain anonymous said it began with a dust up involving another rider and a blue suv. nats of riders/blue suv hand signals, laughter and a back and forth with that driver evident in the video which didn't involve the red truck until- one of them leaned against my truck on the front of it, when he left he nudged the truck with his foot peg or
truck a little bit, and then he popped wheely's taking off and about wrecked right in front of my vehicle, and that undoubtedly is where it began. it's at that point, the driver who has a concealed weapons license is infuriated. when i get up to the next light the guy's got me distracted on the left hand side on the passenger side and then this other individual comes up knocking on my, beating on my passenger door get the gun why you flipping me off i didn't do nothing crossing traffic etc undoubtedly it startled me and i pulled my gun out and i was prepared for him, and it's just that simple. sot i didn't really think it was gonna escalate to what it did he said that your hand was on the trigger- yes it was, and it was there for a reason. if i had issues i was gonna use it. i have a concealed handgun license, i've been trained to use it and i will. both men accuse each other of provoking the other one- but in hindsight, only one of them says he would have
that's literally the first time i've gone up to somebodys window in traffic like that and it will be the last if the same situation happened i'd pull it again. the driver of the truck says he and his passengers filled out reports this morning with henderson police - as did the motorcycle rider. pointing a gun at someone is a gross misdemeanor - but the driver says based on his conversation with police - he doesn't believe he'll face any legal trouble. rancher-- ammon bundy has withdrawn his request to be released from custody as he awaits trial on a conspiracy charge. according to cnn-- bundy will resubmit his request at a later date. bundy along with ten others was arrested last week... following a nearly month- long standoff at a federal wildlife refuge in oregon. militia leader-- lavoy finicum- was killed. four members of the protest group remain inside the refuge presidential candidates wasted no time hoping back on the campaign trail... foillowing last night's caucus in iowa.
