Man arrested for pointing gun at bicyclists in road rage incident

52-year-old Moses Pagan, of Michigan City, Indiana was arrested on felony charges of pointing a loaded firearm and intimidation in connection with a road rage incident.
According to reports, a 61-year-old bicyclist told investigators he and two other men were riding on County Line Road just before 9 a.m. when they were passed by a car that was continuously honking at them and nearly hit them. The car stopped and Pagan yelled at them to "get off the road" and pointed a small black semi-automatic handgun at them.
Pagan admitted blowing his horn but denied pulling a gun. He was upset because the bicycles were taking up the entire lane. He said he had a loaded handgun in a holster on the passenger seat but never touched it. Police asked how the bicyclist could have accurately described the gun if it had been in the holster the entire time.
