(CBS/AP) NEW YORK - Authorities said a 35-year-old motorist was arrested early Thursday for cutting in line at a gas station in New York and pointing a pistol at another motorist who complained.

District Attorney Richard Brown said Sean Bailey was charged with menacing and criminal possession of a weapon for pulling a gun at a Queens gas station. If convicted, Bailey could face up to 15 years in prison.

Damage from the storm has forced many gas stations to close and has disrupted fuel deliveries, causing long lines at the gas stations that remained open.
