HICKORY, N.C. — A teenager with a Confederate flag displayed on his pickup truck told police he was confronted by a man with a gun.
A police investigation is underway in Hickory after an argument broke out over the display. Police said the 18-year-old was confronted by another driver with a pistol, who told him to take his flag down when they were in a gas station in Hickory.
“That’s just going too far,” the teenager’s aunt Angie Hodge told WSOC. “It’s crazy.”
Investigators said they found a loaded 9mm pistol and a man hiding in the woods near the business, but he denied being involved in the incident.
