Police Blotter: Police Respond to Road Rage Complaint on Route 65

The victim told police the other driver pulled over behind him and appeared to pull out a gun.

Police were called Monday to take a road rage report on Route 65 near the Interstate 79 interchange.

Police met with a driver who said another vehicle had been driving erratically and swerving in front of him multiple times starting from the Aliquippa Bridge. He said the car also began jamming on the brakes going from 20 mph to 40 mph.

As they approached the I-79 interchange, police said the victim pulled off the road and the other vehicle pulled off behind him. The victim watched as the other driver began reaching into his glove box, then his groin area as if he was going to pull out a gun.

Police said the victim did not want to pursue the situation, but did want officers to be aware of this individual.
