JACKSON, Mich. (AP) - An 18-year-old man has been sentenced to two to six years in prison for felonious assault after several people were threatened while riding in a pickup truck that was displaying a Confederate flag.

The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports (https://bit.ly/1Mqmjoy ) Thursday that Kantpreet Singh appeared Wednesday in Jackson County Circuit Court.

The 17-year-old driver of the pickup, a 13-year-old boy and a female were stopped at an intersection on July 24, 2015 when another motorist pulled alongside. The other driver brandished a handgun and verbally threatened the people in the pickup.

Authorities have said the 17-year-old driver had moved to Michigan from Alabama and “was showing his southern pride and his southern heritage” with the Confederate flag. A U.S. flag also was displayed on the truck.
