The adult male victim advised that while driving in the area of Harmans Road near Dorsey Road he pulled over to allow for a tailgating vehicle to pass him. The operator of the tailgating vehicle stopped and exited his vehicle on foot to confront the victim. The victim drove from the area but was followed again by the same suspect until stopping in the area of Severn Hills Lane. While stopped the suspect exited his vehicle again and this time confronted the victim with a handgun identifying himself as a federal agent. A verbal exchange occurred and the victim was able to leave the area without injury.
