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.
