    BURLINGTON — A man is facing a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after Burlington police found him driving around with a loaded 9 millimeter pistol that he allegedly pointed at another motorist.

    Burlington police say they received a report early Sunday evening that 55-year-old Ronald G. Charette, of Georgia, was driving from his hometown to Burlington with a firearm to confront a person he believed was in a dispute with his daughter.

    Then police received a 911 call from a 17-year-old motorist not connected to Charette who reported that a person had pointed a firearm at him.

    Charette was located about 7 p.m. He was taken into custody without incident, police said.
