Timothy Bottoms was arrested for allegedly waving a .22-caliber pistol at another motorist while driving on the 101 freeway in Ventura, the California Highway Patrol said today.
The 37-year-old actor, who lives in Santa Barbara, was booked Wednesday night for investigation of brandishing a gun on a roadway, a felony, and carrying a loaded weapon, a misdemeanor. He posted bail and was released.
Frank Harwood, 38, of Meiners Oaks called the CHP on his car phone about 4:30 p.m. to report that he had been threatened. CHP spokesman Jim Utter said it was not immediately known what caused the incident.
