CHESAPEAKE -- A man in a truck pointed a gun at another driver Tuesday morning in Chesapeake, police said. 

42-year-old Richard Maund of Virginia Beach was arrested just before 8 a.m.

Police say he was in a white pick-up truck in the area of Moses Grandy Trail and Shipyard Road when he pointed a handgun at a man in an SUV.  

"The early indication is they had words with each other at the stop light and then he displayed the gun," O'Sullivan told

He was stopped about a mile and a half away and arrested, said Officer Kelly O'Sullivan.

Jeanne McMaster Wilson talked about what she saw in a post on the WVEC13 Facebook page.

"Got stuck at the train & there were 4 Chesapeake police cars parked in the road & several officers near the tracks with the biggest guns Ive ever seen, I assume some sort of assault rifle. I managed to see several vehicles behind me a white pick up being pulled over by a white unmarked police pick up," she wrote.

Maund is charged with brandishing a firearm.

They have not released the name of the other driver, but O'Sullivan told it doesn't appear the two know each other.

No one was hurt.
