An Amelia man was charged with brandishing a firearm after he pointed a gun at a Chesterfield family that was waving Confederate Flags on Hull Street Road outside their Moseley home, police said. James Baker, 46, was released following his arrest on the class one misdemeanor. He is due in court on September 3.
No one was hurt in the Monday night incident and no charges have been filed yet as the investigation remained on-going, a Chesterfield Police spokeswoman said.
Mark Wilson, whose family stood outside and waved the flag Monday night and again on Tuesday, called the incident scary.
“He slammed on the brakes and when he got right beside me, he pulled out a gun, chambered a round and told me my cause wasn’t worth anything now,” Wilson said. “He got out of the car and took three steps towards me and the gun was maybe six inches off my head.”
