The Tuolumne County Sheriff's Office says that when he pulled over to assist, a man held him at gunpoint and demanded the money.

The man denied having any money, but the male suspect told him he knew he had won at the casino and continued demanding the money.

The man then gave the male suspect the money and both suspects got into the pickup and drove away.
