While driving last week on Ga. 400, a man stuck in traffic said he couldn’t get out of the way of a white Dodge Charger weaving in and out of lanes.
The Charger’s driver then began to honk at the man, throw heavy objects at his car and eventually pulled out a gun, Channel 2 Action News reported. Roswell police are now looking to arrest that driver for the road-rage incident.
The victim spoke to Channel 2 about the incident near Holcomb Bridge Road that dented his car and scared him for his life.
“He’s swerving in and out of lanes very quickly and I’m ... next to the left lane and there’s cars on either side of me, and he comes right up on my bumper really fast,” the man, who asked the news station to remain anonymous, said. “He starts honking his horn and flashing his lights, but he has nowhere to go.”
The man isn’t sure what items the Charger’s driver threw at his car, but he said they were heavy enough to leave a dent. When the driver was eventually able to get beside the man’s vehicle, he allegedly pointed a gun.
“Eventually he’s gonna point the gun at someone, and he’s gonna pull the trigger, and it’s gonna be tragic,” the man told Channel 2.
The victim was able to take a picture of the Charger, which he provided to police. In that photo, the driver is making an obscene gesture.
Police told the news station they have the driver’s license plate number and are attempting to track him down. It’s unclear what charges the driver will face.
