A man was arrested on Thursday after he pointed a gun at a pedestrian walking down the left lane of a highway in the opposite direction, according to Cape Coral Police.

CCPD says, the victim of the crime was walking south in a northbound lane when a black ford driven by Dale Jamison, 69, pulled up beside him and began yelling at the victim for walking in the middle of the road.

The victim told Jamison that he was not in the middle but was in the left lane facing traffic.

Jamison then began to leave when the pedestrian yelled “that was rude” towards Jamison.

He then stopped his truck and waited for the victim to begin walking by and pointed his gun out the window towards the person.

Jamison then drove away from the scene. At the time of the incident, there were numerous individuals which were at the intersection where a school bus was dropping off elementary school students approximately 50 feet away.

Cape Coral Police Officers were able to locate Jamison at his residence where he was outside doing yard work. During the investigation Officer H. Esterle located a Taurus handgun holstered in the waist band of Jamison. This firearm was loaded and taken into custody as evidence.

Based on the investigation Officer R. Herrera arrested Jamison for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Reckless Exhibition of a Firearm.
