    I saw this on another forum and it's gotten few replies, and there have been few views and no comments on youtube. It reportedly occurred at W. Pershing and Pike.

    What's up in Little Rock?

    Maybe with the plate and vid of the individual, an arrest will follow.

    What? I missed the gun? I'm not sure what that was supposed to show. Guy in back seat tries to get out of moving car?

    If you go full screen, you can see the guy in the back seat with a gun...not sure what constitutes brandishing, but he never pointed it out of the car.

    If you say so. Just having a gun visible is not normally brandishing. (Opening car door of moving car, getting into road rage.... Is stupid.).

    its not brandishing when even those watching a video of it later can't tell there is a weapon.

    Gun is easily seen on large screen view.

    Sad day when you try to intimidate someone and drop your phone at the scene.

    I can't imagine he was offering the gun for sale. Gun out and door opened like that made me think it was part of a road rage incident and an attempt to intimidate.

    I take it you've never been to North Little Rock? I'd expect to see guns brandished pretty often around there.

    You want that answer alphabetized, or just the top ten?

    It almost looks as if he purposely tossed the cell phone out. Weird. If it's a road rage and he's opening the door in response to the person in the car taking the video, it IS brandishing. Plain and simple. But like the shootings around here lately, there will be no motive, no one will know anything and the investigation will be stillborn.

    Litter bug. Not sure why he had a pistol in his hand. Bad neighborhood perhaps?

    I agree it looked very stupid on many levels. On my iPad I don't see the gun. (Which does not matter). Just because camera does not catch it...
    IF I was taking report. That I couldn't see gun (I guess until big screen) wouldn't matter. Person making complaint said they saw a gun. Treated as there was a gun. (And with stupid activity it looks like). I font doubt there was a gun, object that he pretended was a gun...

    Thank you.
    Ok that looks like a gun. Maybe.
    What's important is person being threatened saw it, felt threatened by it. (In short clip it appears no legal reason to have gun out)

    Argument can be made he was trying to close with weapon drawn. Lots of charges. IMO he owes driver a lot. Stopped him from going full retard. ( If my assumption of what's going on correct)

    Little Rock has been a place where lots of that and worse has been going on for sometime and only getting worse rapidly.

    I completely missed the bag toss. Does that change things?
