Somebody called police about a man pointing a gun at cars on Chapel Hill Road. Madison police drew their weapons and handcuffed the man.

The tense situation was diffused quickly and police say the only mistake the 70-year-old made was not notifying them of his plans.

It apparently isn't against the law for someone to aim a radar gun at traffic and the man was allowed to keep the old-but-functioning radar unit.
