The Department of Parking and Traffic has nothing on this guy

Some homeowners call for a tow truck when a car is blocking their driveway.

But one man in the Portola district handled the situation his own way — he waved a gun at a driver in an attempt to clear the path, police said.

Needless to say, the brazen act got him into trouble with cops.

The incident was reported around 10:40 p.m. Friday in the unit block of Cambridge Street, police said. The driver said he was in his car making a phone call when the homeowner approached him with the request to move his car. It was not immediately clear whether the homeowner had to ask twice, but at one point he “exited his home, waved the gun at the victim, and demanded that the victim move his car,” police said.

The homeowner then went back into his home, apparently hoping the driver got the message. The driver called the cops.

When police arrived, the homeowner was not shy about what he had done. He came out of his home and told them: Yep, I pointed my gun at him, police said.

Cops searched his home, found the weapon, and took the homeowner into custody. They cited him then released him, police said.
