MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota State Patrol says the motorist who allegedly brandished a gun at another driver on a Twin Cities highway turned out to be a federal agent.

The incident began about 6:40 a.m. Tuesday on eastbound Interstate 694 in Brooklyn Park, where a motorist called police to report that another driver was displaying a gun.

Police caught up to the gun-toting driver on I-94 at Olson Highway and blocked two of the southbound lanes in downtown Minneapolis while making an arrest.

The Star Tribune ( reports the man was questioned and released after officers learned he was an agent for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and was carrying proper credentials.
