SHEBOYGAN — A 30 year old man was arrested after he was accused of pointing at gun at a driver at a McDonald’s on Sheboygan’s south side.

Devin A. King, of 2303 South 8th Street in Sheboygan, was charged Tuesday with felony possession of a firearm by a felon after he allegedly pointed a gun at another driver.

According to the criminal complaint, Sheboygan Police were called to the Mobile McDonalds, located at 3626 South Taylor Drive, for a report that a man had pointed a gun at a driver. The victim told police  was driving northbound on Interstate 43 from Cedar Grove.

He stated there was a white minivan that came on him at a high rate of speed about a half a mile south of the Highway 28 exit. He said the vehicle was so close behind him, going 80-85 miles per hour, that he could not see their fender.

The victim went to the right lane to exit onto Washington Avenue from I-43. At the off ramp, he was in the left lane and the van was in the right lane stopped at a red light. Their windows were down and there was an exchange of words with the driver of the van according to the criminal complaint. The victim stated the driver asked him if he wanted to do something, and made threats to harm the victim. The driver suggested they go to the McDonalds parking lot to resolve the issue.

According to the complaint, the victim stated at some point during the verbal altercation, a black male came out from behind the driver and started yelling at them and had pulled out a gun. It was described as possibly a .38 and silver in color. He stated the male extended his arm all the way out the driver’s window, saying his arm was out past his elbow and chest was up to the driver’s window. The male said “do you want to get your ass capped.”

Officers eventually pulled the suspect’s vehicle, and approached the car with their weapons drawn. The individual was arrested, and identified as Devin King. The vehicle was searched and when officers opened up the top section of the center console, they found a smaller console in which there was a weapon. There were 4 empty shell casings in it, with a 5th intact casing. It was identified as a Smith and Wesson 38 Special.
