What started as concern over speeding ended with a driver pulling a gun on a mother and her family in Waite Park.

The incident unfolded starting around 11:30 a.m. Sunday in Rockville, when the mom noticed a grey Ford SUV passing vehicles on the shoulder of Hwy. 23 at high speeds.

With her fiance and two young children in the car, she followed the vehicle to the parking lot of a Craft's Direct in Waite Park in order to get the license plate and report it to police.

It was there that the offending driver, a 46-year-old woman from Richmond, got out of the SUV and pulled a handgun, pointing it at the mother and her family as they sat in their car.

They fled the area and immediately called 911. The suspect then went into Craft's Direct before calling 911 herself, eventually returning to her SUV where police were waiting.

Police found an uncased handgun in the driver's side door, and the woman was arrested for 2nd degree assault and terroristic threats.
