Vermont police have arrested a Burlington man they say threatened and aimed a firearm at another driver at a downtown intersection.

Authorities say 40-year-old Torrey Allard is charged with reckless endangerment, aggravated disorderly conduct and simple assault. Police say he pointed a gun at 55-year-old Scott Hatin, of Burlington, just before 11 p.m. Saturday. They say Hatin left his vehicle to confront Allard about items he'd thrown at Hatin's car.

Police say the confrontation evolved from a verbal altercation between the two men about a driving incident.

Allard left the scene but police found him at a gas station, where they arrested him and seized a Colt Commander BB gun from his car.

He is being held on $1,000 bail. It was not immediately known if he has a lawyer.
