A man is behind bars after allegedly pulling a gun on another man.
Officials with the Hazard Police Department say they received a call around noon Saturday that 53 year old Stuart Reynolds of Whitesburg had attempted to strike another man with his car.
"The victim was backing up to get away from the assailant and when he did so, the assailant pointed a firearm in his direction and cocked it," said Captain Isaac Whitaker with the Hazard Police.
Officials say they believe Reynolds tossed the gun out of his car when he fled the scene. Police officers are still searching the area trying to find the gun. They say if you find a weapon, do to not touch it and call police immediately.
Reynolds is being held on two counts of wanton endangerment first degree at the Kentucky River Regional Jail.
