A 31-year-old Lake Stevens man who cut into a line of cars waiting for the Edmonds-Kingston ferry Saturday afternoon is facing a misdemeanor charge of displaying a firearm following a dispute with the motorist he pulled in front of, Edmonds police said.
According to Edmonds police spokesman Sgt. Shane Hawley, at around 1:30 p.m. the man cut in front of someone waiting in the ferry line “and that person took exception to that,” Hawley said. During the ensuing verbal altercation, the man displayed a handgun, and police were called, Hawley said.
While the man had a permit for the gun and didn’t actually point it at anyone, it’s against state law “to display it in a threatening manner,” Hawley added.
