Fuller also pleaded guilty to a separate drug case from 2020 on Wednesday and will serve both sentences at the same time in the Colorado Department of Corrections.
Police said they were called to the Kum and Go gas station in May of 2019 in Greeley on a report of a road rage incident that involved a gun.
The victim told police Fuller was driving erratically on Highway 34 and when the victim told him to slow down, Fuller pointed a gun at him.
When police made contact with him, WCDAO said officers searched Fuller's car and found 114 grams of methamphetamine and later found a gun buried at a nearby construction site.
Fuller's second incident happened on December 18, 2020, when police said they received a call from the Fairfield Inn on 29th Street in Greeley.
The hotel staff recognized Fuller, who had several warrants out for his arrest, and when police arrived, they found 23 grams of methamphetamine inside his front waistband and took him into custody.
WCDAO said during their search, officers found a stolen gun, other drug paraphernalia, and a digital scale from Fuller’s hotel room.
