LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Police say an 84-year-old man accused of pointing a gun at two women protesting President Barack Obama in suburban Atlanta has been arrested. Gwinnett County police Cpl. Ed Ritter told WSB-TV (http://bit.ly/GLtYTm) Roy Smith is charged with three counts of simple assault and pointing a firearm at another. Toni Pendley and Marge Moore were standing along a county highway calling for Obama to be impeached when a man drove up to them and pulled a gun. A witness copied down the car's tag number. Police say they served a search warrant and found a gun in Smith's car. Smith denies the allegations and told investigators he kept the gun nearby in case he was ever carjacked. Smith is free on $1,000 bond and it's unclear if he has an attorney. ___ Information from: WSB-TV, http://www.wsbtv.com/index.html
