A man ended up in handcuffs this week after threatening to kill a black family during a racially provoked attack.
According to WJAX-TV, Thomas Langdale was arrested Friday for pulling a gun on a black family after their teenage son accidentally brushed against his car.
The incident took place outside a grocery store in Kingsland, Georgia.
“He yelled out, ‘I’ve been watching him in my rearview mirror, he doesn’t need to brush up against my car,’” recalled father Eric Dawson. “‘He’s not worth enough to brush up against my car, don’t ever come up beside my car again.’”
Dawson said Langdale pointed a gun and used a racial slur to threaten him outside Winn-Dixie.
“He pointed it directly at me in my face, all I could see was the barrel of that gun,” Dawson said. “Then he said, ‘I’ll shoot you. I’ll kill you.’”
“I said ‘Put the gun down,’” Dawson said. “‘Fight me, fight me.’”
Langdale was arrested for aggravated assault.
