ELMONT, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — What started as an apparent road rage incident Monday has resulted in the arrest of a 19-year-old Elmont man.
Andrew Schreier was behind the wheel when he pulled alongside another car, pulled out a gold badge, and said “I’m a cop, and I’ll give you tickets,” according to Nassau County police. Schreier then pulled out what appeared to be a black pistol and pointed it at the other car, police said.
“No one could really tell by look at this that it was not a real gun,” said Nassau County Police Inspector Kenneth Lack.
The occupants of the other car followed Schreier and called 911, police said. Schreier drove to a dead end street, ditched his car and tried to run away, police said.
