  (Stillwater, Okla.) — A 21-year-old Drumright man, who was driving a Dodge Charger, has been charged with pointing a Glock pistol at a female front seat passenger in a Honda Odyssey at 3rd and Perkins Road in Stillwater at 8 am on Oct. 17.
    Bradyn Cain Patterson was released from jail the next day on $5,000 bail on the condition that he not possess a firearm, court records show. Patterson was ordered to appear in court on Nov. 16 with an attorney on a charge of feloniously pointing a firearm.
    If convicted of the gun charge, Patterson could be imprisoned for one to 10 years and fined as much as $10,000, court records show.
    Stillwater Police Officer Chase Mobus had been dispatched to 6th and Perkins Road regarding someone in a black Dodge Charger pointing a firearm at someone in another vehicle, according to his affidavit.
    Mobus and another Stillwater officer “were in route when we were advised that a Payne County Sheriff’s Office deputy was out with the vehicle at 6th and Drury. Officer Johnsonbaugh responded to the suspect vehicle,” with additional officers, Mobus wrote in his affidavit.
    “I contacted the victim vehicle,” which was driven by a man, who had two passengers, one in the front and another in the back, Mobus wrote in his affidavit.
    The front seat passenger said, “she was the one who saw the gun,” the affidavit alleged.
    “She told me that it looked like a ‘cop gun.’ I showed her part of my duty-issued pistol and asked if it looked like this at all. She immediately said yes,” Mobus alleged in his affidavit.
    “I advised Master Patrol Officer Rivas of this, and he advised that he found the gun, which was in fact a Glock pistol,” Mobus alleged in his affidavit.
    She said that they were traveling south on Perkins Road, the affidavit said.
    “She said that they were in the left lane and attempted to merge right. She said that the Dodge Charger would not let them over and cut them and another vehicle off,” the affidavit alleged.
The driver said “he flipped off the person, later identified as Bradyn Patterson, who was driving the Charger. After they came to 3rd and Perkins Rd., there are cones, which cause everyone to merge left.
