A Hagerstown man who pointed a gun at a trucker in a dispute over a parking space last summer was given a 3-year suspended prison sentence Thursday in Washington County Circuit Court.
Richard Lee Vance, 53, of 20042 Jefferson Blvd., pleaded guilty to second-degree assault and transporting a handgun.
"Did you get angry and want to show off?" asked Circuit Judge Donald Beachley.
"Yes, I did," Vance said.
"That's not a good example for your kids," Beachley said.
Vance agreed. "I regret the entire incident happened," Vance said Thursday.
Around midnight on June 12, Vance was parked near Virginia Avenue and Cemetery Lane when a tractor-trailer driver asked him to move so he could park his truck, according to Washington County Sheriff's deputies.
Angered by the request, Vance retrieved a .357-magnum Smith and Wesson revolver from his vehicle and pointed it at the trucker, deputies said.
