ANN ARBOR(AP) – Ann Arbor police are investigating a Muslim woman’s claim that a motorist called her a terrorist and held up a handgun.

Lt. Renee Bush says the 21-year-old woman says the incident occurred around 9 a.m. Sunday. Bush says the woman was at a stop light when another driver pulled up and yelled racial slurs.

Bush says the woman called 911 and provided a license plate number to police. Detectives are investigating.

The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations wants federal authorities to investigate the incident as a hate crime. The woman was wearing a traditional Islamic head scarf, known as a hijab.
