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.

  1. Isn’t there a ordnance making it a crime to cut in the ferry line? No mention of him being charged with that.
    To bad the other driver didn’t know he could just call the police and have this guy kicked out of line and possible get a fine. Sure would have been a lot better than risking getting shot!
