LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a La Grange man held an Amazon delivery driver at gunpoint and demanded that he smooth out his gravel driveway with a rake.

According to an arrest report, the incident took place Thursday afternoon in the 2300 block of Spann Lane, just northeast of downtown La Grange.

Oldham County Police say an Amazon delivery driver had just delivered a package to the home of 63-year-old Kenneth Vance. As the driver was preparing to leave, police say Vance pulled a gun, pointed it at him and demanded that he get out of the vehicle. Police say he then told the driver to stay where he was while he walked back into the house and returned with a rake.

At that point, police say he demanded that the driver use the rake to even out the gravel in his driveway that was disturbed by the delivery van.

"This is the first time I've heard of an incident like this," said Maj. Neil Johnson with Oldham County Police. 

Vance was eventually arrested and charged with first-degree wanton endangerment and first-degree unlawful imprisonment.

Johnson said the driver did the right thing by staying calm and cooperating. 

"In this situation, he was able to remove himself from this situation safely, he was able to contact us, and we were able to take our action," Johnson said. "So he did everything he should do to make sure he was safe."
