Sandy Springs police arrested three people and recovered two guns after a road rage incident on Monday.
Stanley Tyler, 18, of Atlanta, is facing charges of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, online records show. Dewayne Stanley, 24, was charged with disorderly conduct and was also wanted by Atlanta police for theft, Sandy Springs police said. A 17-year-old was also charged with disorderly conduct in the incident.
Police said they responded to a call of a man pointing a pistol at a woman on Roswell Road near an off-ramp for westbound I-285. The victim — a 22-year-old Sandy Springs woman — told police she was in traffic when she cut off another car, and then three men exited that car and started banging on her windows.
The woman told police that she “feared for her life” and sped away in her 2015 silver Ford Focus after one of the men pointed a gun at her. Police said a witness told them they saw that suspect run and hide behind a nearby Jiffy Lube.
Officers found him and the car all three men were riding in, a 2014 red Nissan Sentra. Police recovered two firearms, one of which was reported stolen. The car belonged to a 57-year-old woman in Clayton County.
The department commended the officer’s work on Facebook by writing, “This situation had the possibility of turning deadly. Great job by all the officers involved.”
