Albuquerque, NM - According to police, 43-year-old Chris Williams was arrested after they say he held another man at gunpoint. 

You can see on the video as one officer comes face to face with him.  

"Drop the gun! Drop the gun! Drop the gun now!"

Williams puts his hands in the air and officers separate both men to get their sides of story.  Both are military veterans. 

It all started when the 62-year-old victim saw a bumper sticker on Williams' truck.  He told police it said derogatory things about President Obama. He didn't know Williams, but wanted to let him know that sticker offended him. 

"Why would a vet, or an American citizen, want to put that stuff on their truck?!" 

The victim told Williams he should be ashamed of himself. 

Williams told police he told the victim to get out of his face, but claims that victim ignored him and the two began to argue.

It soon escalated to the victim ending up on his knees with his hands up and Williams allegedly holding the gun to the back of the victim's head.

"Drop the gun! Drop the gun! Drop the gun now!" 

Officers got there just in time, and possibly saved the man's life. 

CNN affiliate KOAT reports that Chris Williams has been charged with aggravated assault and false imprisonment.
