The North Charleston Police Department has arrested a woman for pulling a gun on an undercover detective during a traffic argument Wednesday on the I-526E interchange to I-26W.

Niquel Simone Wheeler is charged with Pointing and Presenting a Firearm, Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol, and Possession of a Stolen Firearm.

Wheeler became angered at another driver who was an undercover detective with the Charleston County Sheriff's Office, according to police. They say she stopped her vehicle on the ramp, blocking the detective.

The detective says she proceeded to pull a silver pistol. The detective alerted nearby officers of the situation, who pulled Wheeler over. Police say they located the silver handgun, and found out it was reported stolen.

Wheeler is being held at the Sheriff Al Cannon Detention Center.
