NYC man accused of pulling gun in gas line

Cars line up for gas after Sandy

NEW YORK (AP) — The fight for fuel after Superstorm Sandy is starting to get nasty.

New York City authorities say a motorist was arrested after he tried to cut in line at a gas station in Queens early Thursday and pointed a pistol at another motorist who complained.

Queens District Attorney Richard Brown says 35-year-old Sean Bailey, of Queens, was arrested on charges of menacing and criminal possession of a weapon. It wasn’t clear whether he had a lawyer.

Damage from the storm has forced many gas stations to close and has disrupted full deliveries, causing long lines at the gas stations that remained open.

If convicted, Bailey could face up to 15 years in prison.
