The Pittsfield Township, MI man fired the shot after the snow plow piled some snow behind his car, blocking him.

The plow driver, Ben Clink, told The Ann Arbor News he was more than seven hours into his shift, using a front-end loader to remove roughly 4 inches of fresh snow, when the irate man started to approach him. When Clink realized the man had a gun, he ducked down behind the steering wheel as low as he could. After the man fired one shot, Clink started begging for his life as the gunman continued walking toward him.

“I was just saying ‘Please don’t shoot me, please don’t shoot me. I’ll move the snow, please don’t shoot me,’” he said.

The gunman eventually retreated and Clink called 911. Police said the suspect has a concealed pistol license and surrendered his gun to officers at the scene. The man was arrested, although it wasn’t immediately clear if he’s being held, pending charges.
