An 18-year-old man was arrested by police in Virginia for brandishing a firearm at elementary school students, because they had been making disparaging comments about a confederate flag on his truck. Now, if that’s not the stupidest thing you’ve ever heard, you must be familiar with some extremely idiotic things!
Joshua P. Dalton was reportedly in his pickup truck, stopped behind an elementary school bus that was unloading children, when the incident occurred, according to police. It is not clear what the kids said to Dalton, but it was about the confederate flag displayed on his truck. After Dalton reportedly drew his gun, two of the students involved returned to the bus and told the bus driver there was a man aiming a gun at the bus. The bus driver brought them back onboard, returned them to the school, and called the police.
Dalton is charged with two counts of brandishing a firearm. A female passenger accompanying Dalton was not charged.
When will people stop acting stupid? Maybe never.
