    Motorist's quip about 'Grey Poupon' met with cocked, black handgun - Salt Lake Tribune

    Motorist's quip about 'Grey Poupon' met with cocked, black handgun
    By Jason Bergreen

    Posted: 9:16 PM- A Sandy man took offense to a motorist, who, after getting him to roll down his window, asked, "Excuse me, sir, do you have any Grey Poupon?"
    After hearing the request for Dijon mustard, the 22-year-old driver pulled a black handgun from his glove compartment, cocked the weapon and pointed it at the three people in the other car.
    "Here's your Grey Poupon, roll your [expletive] windows up," he responded.
    The confrontation happened June 18 at the intersection of 900 East and Winchester Street (6500 South) in Murray, court documents state.
    One of the three people in the car wrote down the SUV's license plate number.
    Murray police later located the man, who admitted to an officer that he pulled out the gun, racked the slide and threaten the other car.
    He was charged Tuesday with aggravated assault, a third-degree felony.

    What an idiot! What would have you done in this situation? Say it was your kid in the back seat acting goofy (as kids do)...

    This guy doesn't need to have a gun! And it sounds like he may not have that privilege if he is convicted.

    Yikes...hope they throw the book at him. I wonder after serving his time he should be aloud to have a weapon again?

    Tough call on what to do...probably would get the hell out of dodge first to protect my passengers.

    Sounds like he was having a bad day, I don't agree with what he did, but I have on more that one occasion seen a car full of teens that needed a scare like that. There is having some fun, and their is being an idiot too.

    Best thing would be to just drive away. Hopefully the kids in the car will learn a lesson from this also.

    You just never know what kind of people you'll encounter, when out in public or on the highway. Acting stupid or goofy can get you killed. Anything can set off a psycho, as this 22 yr old nut job obviously is, fortunately nobody was hurt and this moron was tracked down and arrested. Hopefully he learned pointing your gun at someone is NO JOKE. Asking someone for mustard is not quit the same as demanding their wallet. Had he been asked for his wallet, perhaps then his response would have been appropriate. The guys in the car should have vanished ASAP, once they saw this guy was not amused.

    I've told my children many time not to act stupid or goofy in public, you never know how people might react. Thinking you are being funny, might **** somebody off who is crazy or already having a bad day and you might incur their rath......... or worse.

    Idiot.

    Every now and then a thread comes up that asks for a definition of brandishing........ This is an excellent example!

    There's an unfortunate lesson to be learned about attempting to joke around with strangers too, though......

    One can not afford to have a "bad day" when they are armed...period.

    As for having fun...we need to chill and sometimes laugh.

    definition of brandishing........

    I'm not sure what a good one is, but I can tell you the best way to stay away from that problems is....

    Always leave your gun in the holster and only draw a Nanosecond before you shoot someone.

    Yep a text book case showing what 'brandishing' actually is.

    Two idiots met on a road. One went to jail, the other went on being an idiot.

    Such inane and insane comments can indicate a serious danger, as people discovered at the boat landing in Circle, Alaska. Some drifter said he was there to fish for black bass (on the Yukon), but he was killing people as they landed their boats.

    In the cities, aren't muggers asking for something harmless, like "what time is it" or for a light to gauge the vulnerability of the potential victim?
