Recent police reports and arrests in Fredericksburg:


Fall Hill Ave/Carl D Silver Pkwy, 7/1 9:50 a.m.  A 52-year-old Spotsylvania resident and her 21-year-old son reported that they were stationary at the traffic light on Gordon Shelton Boulevard and Fall Hill Avenue when the driver of a Kia sitting behind their car in traffic honked his horn at them.  The 21-year-old, who was in the passenger seat of his mother’s Jeep, made a hand gesture toward the Kia in response to the honking.  The Kia turned right onto Fall Hill Avenue behind the victims and as they approached the light at Carl D Silver Parkway, the Kia pulled up beside the victims on the driver’s side of their car.  The driver of the Kia then pulled a holstered handgun out and pointed it at them while threatening the victims verbally.  The victims were able to note the license plate number of the Kia as both vehicles headed into Spotsylvania County, and the victims called 911.  A Spotsylvania deputy located the Kia at the Spotsylvania Crossing Shopping Center and detained the driver until a city officer arrived on the scene.  Kenneth Chaffin, 77, of Spotsylvania was arrested for brandishing a firearm and he was released by the magistrate on a $1500 bond.  A handgun, as described by the victims, was located in Chaffin’s vehicle and it was secured for evidence.
