"I had looked out my passenger window and there is was, you know, pointing straight at me," she said. "I was terrified. I didn't know that he wasn't going to shoot it. That's all I was thinking, you know, what if he was to shoot through my window."
Amber called police and was able to give a detailed description of the suspect.
Police then stopped Mark Oberkirsch. Oberkirsch, who lives in Missouri and has a concealed weapons permit from that state, admitted that he showed the gun during the road rage incident. He complained that Amber was driving 65 mph in the passing lane and when she didn't pull over he passed on the right while pointing the gun at her. He also complained that when he pulled up next to her she was on the phone.
Oberkirsch was arrested on a felony complaint of pointing a firearm. If convicted, in addition to jail time and a fine, he could "possibly" lose his handgun license.
