A St. Albans, Queens man has been charged with menacing and criminal possession of a weapon after he attempted to cut a line at a gas station and pointed a pistol at another motorist who complained.

According to charges, Sean M. Bailey, 35, of 111-14 204th Street was attempting to pull his white 2010 BMW ahead of another motorist on a gas line at the intersection of Astoria Boulevard and 43rd Street sometime between 2:30 a.m. and 3:05 a.m. on Thursday.

Prosecutors say that when a 29-year-old driver complained, Bailey pulled out a gun, pointed it at the victim and said, "If you don't pull back, you're not getting gas tonight."

Police arrested Bailey and found a loaded .25 caliber Phoenix Raven pistol in his left boot.  If convicted, Bailey faces up to fifteen years in prison.

    A NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit. The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.
