ST. LOUIS – An Olivette man is accused of pulling a gun on a woman at a south St. Louis gas station.
He did it because she would not move her car, according to police.
Carl Golden, 62, was released from jail Monday after posting $1,000 of a $10,000 bond. He’s charged with felony unlawful use of a weapon.
It seemed like just another Thursday afternoon at the BP station at Kingshighway and Manchester in south St. Louis, customers said.
Suddenly, there was a police scene. There was no robbery but there was a gun.
Police said Golden was honking at a woman to move her vehicle. When she did not move, Golden got out of his car and pointed a loaded .40 caliber pistol at her.
Golden left the scene but police tracked him down and recovered the gun.
If convicted, Golden faces up to four years in prison.
Golden has hired an attorney.
He tells FOX 2/NEWS 11 there are two sides to this story. He says acted in self-defense and was never near the woman who claims to be a victim. He expects surveillance video from the scene to bear that out.
