A North Augusta man was arrested Wednesday for allegedly pointing a gun at motorist who honked at him.
Earnest Wigfall, 57, was captured after the victim called public safety officers and followed the suspect. According to the victim, Wigfall pulled in front of him on Atomic Road and almost caused an accident about 3:45 p.m. Wednesday. After slamming on his brakes, the victim blared his horn at Wigfall, who then “waved a gun at him,” a report states.
After being stopped by the cop, Wigfall was “argumentative” and had a semi-automatic pistol sitting in the seat next to him, a report states. Wigfall was later charged with pointing and presenting a firearm and unlawful carrying of a firearm.
Wigfall remained in the Aiken County Detention Center on Thursday afternoon.
