Racist Georgia man draws gun on road crew for blocking his way home: ‘Get the n****rs off the road’
A Georgia man is facing multiple charges after he was seen on video shouting racial slurs and using a gun to threaten a road construction crew.
Construction worker Nelson King told WAGA-TV that he was working on a road in Coweta County on Thursday morning when 72-year-old Harold Bishop began shouting racial slurs.
“He pulled up on us and he was like, ‘Get these N-word off the road, I live here, I’ll kill you N-word,'” King recalled.
King said that he began recording the incident with his cellphone when Bishop pulled a gun. Meanwhile, another member of the crew called 911.
The Coweta County Sheriff’s Office said that Bishop left the scene but then returned by the time officers arrived. A deputy reported seeing Bishop throw a beer container out of his window.
After deputies said that they could not find a firearm in Bishop’s vehicle, King produced video proof of the incident.
“They were like, ‘Oh, he’s got to go,'” King said.
Charges against Bishop include five counts of aggravated assault with a firearm, pointing a gun at another, terroristic threats, DUI and probation violations.
According to WAGA-TV, Bishop will remain in custody without bond until his next court appearance on Thursday.
