A man pulled a gun on little children after they laughed at him in the street, according to reports in Virginia.
Virginia Beach Police arrested the 18-year-old man this week, and charged him with two counts of misdemeanor brandishing a firearm after he allegedly pointed his gun at elementary students.
Joshua P. Dalton was in a blue van at the time of the incident, and was reportedly stopped behind a Pembroke primary school bus that was unloading children.
Two students returned to the bus and informed the driver that Dalton had pulled a gun and was pointing it at the bus.
The bus driver brought the children to school and alerted authorities.
Police said that Dalton was upset by disparaging remarks the students made about his Confederate flag on his truck.
He was booked into jail and later released on bail. Dalton also had a passenger in the truck, who was not arrested.
Recently, a school bus driver in Oregon, won the right to have a Confederate flag fly on his bus. He faced stiff opposition, but eventually won his battle in court without a gun.
