Weapons, ammo found in vehicle following road rage incident in Maryland; Va. man arrested

- A Virginia man was arrested after police say he brandished a handgun at another driver in a suspected road rage incident in Maryland.

The incident happened just after 2 p.m. Friday on Interstate 95 near the Prince George's County and Howard County line. Maryland State Police say a male driver in a black Chevrolet Traverse pointed a gun at a female driver in a black BMW vehicle.

The victim called police about the incident and several minutes later, troopers were able to conduct a traffic stop on the black Traverse on northbound I-95 at Route 216 after it matched the suspect's vehicle description. During the stop, troopers saw the 41-year-old driver sitting on a handgun while they were questioning him.

Police say they also discovered the driver had an assault rifle, another rifle along with a shotgun and ammunition in his vehicle. According to a police source, some of the weapons were loaded.

Troopers would arrest the suspect at the scene. There were no injuries during this incident, police say.

Police had the Traverse towed away for further processing.

FOX 5 briefly spoke with the suspect's fiancee when she came to get his vehicle. She said she was in the car at the time of the incident and she did not see him point the gun at the other driver. She also said it appeared that the woman was the aggressor.
