DUNCANSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - A man visiting from Florida has been charged with threatening to shoot another motorist in a crowded central Pennsylvania convenience store parking lot.

Sixty-five-year-old Benjamin Frye, of Vero Beach, told reporters “It’s a lie, I did not point a gun at anybody,” before his arraignment on terroristic threat and other charges after Tuesday’s incident at a Kwik Fill near Duncansville.

Township police say another motorist approached Frye’s car as Frye leaned forward onto his horn, thinking Frye might be having a medical emergency. Instead, police believe Frye was in “road rage” because the lot was crowded with gasoline and other customers and he couldn’t drive away.

That’s when police say Frye threatened the other man with a gun Frye is licensed to carry.

He faces an Aug. 21 preliminary hearing.
