A Churchton man is charged with first-degree assault as police say he pulled a gun on a man outside the Annapolis Target following a verbal altercation.
Anne Arundel police said officers were called to the store for a report of an armed suspect at 5:03 p.m. Wednesday.
A man told police that another man — identified as 32-year-old George Amos Guthridge — was speeding in the parking garage and nearly struck his daughter with his car.
The victim told police he yelled at Guthridge to slow down, at which point he stopped his vehicle and confronted the victim.
After a verbal argument, the victim told police Guthridge pulled out a black handgun and threatened him before leaving in his vehicle.
Guthridge was found in the 2500 block of Riva Road, and police said a black BB gun was found following a traffic stop.
He has been charged with first- and second-degree assault as well as reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct.
No attorney is listed as representing Guthridge in court records.
