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.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.

    When Denis Belliveau is teaching kids about Marco Polo, he is in his element. He makes the explorer's journey come alive by taking students on a No. 7 train ride through Queens, New York's most diverse borough. He brings history alive for his students. Along the way the students stop in neighborhoods that mirror Polo's trip. I caught up with the class in Flushing, Queens, which easily resembles China.
