Pulling up to his bank's ATM, Allan Carlson thought he was
safely away from the traffic dispute in which he had been engaged
just moments earlier. Suddenly, the three men pulled up, blocking
Carlson's vehicle in its parking spot and jumping from their car.
The Etters, Pennsylvania, resident warned the men to leave him alone

refused to charge the armed citizen with any wrongdoing after
reviewing video tape from a bank surveillance camera that revealed
Carlson had done everything possible to avoid the confrontation.
