Boston Police report arresting a Dorchester man they say approached the driver of another car with whom he had just crashed and displayed a handgun in a threatening manner, around 5 p.m. on Tuesday.
Police say officers responding to a report of a man with a gun on Dorchester Avenue near the intersection with West 5th and A streets found Danh Nguyen, 29, standing near one of two cars that had obviously just collided.
