Details

Road rage on the W. Beltline Highway led to the arrest of one driver after he allegedly produced a handgun yesterday afternoon. The victim said the weapon was pointed at him, the suspect said it was not. Both men concur they were not happy with the other's driving. The road rage began when the suspect claimed to have been cut off near Stoughton Rd. He says they both sped up and slowed down, pacing one another. At one point he says the victim gave him the finger, and he responded by using his phone to take a picture of the victim. At that point he says windows were rolled down as the victim yelled at him. He responded by displaying the handgun. At that point, the victim hit the brakes and called 911. He got the suspect's plate number and police used that to track him down.
