Road Rage Incident Ends with Several Charges
Release Date: 90080
A 32-year-old local man is facing several charges after he lost his temper in traffic and drove dangerously while intimidating and harassing another driver.
On February 2, 2018 at approximately 7:45 a.m. the complainant and the accused were both travelling on Taylor Kidd Boulevard in the westbound lanes. When the complainant made a lane change into the left lane the accused accelerated from behind and then pulled into the opposing traffic lanes to drive up alongside the complainant. While driving in the wrong lanes, the accused began honking his horn, yelling and waving his arms. He then started veering towards the complainant’s vehicle before accelerating at a high rate of speed and eventually pulling back into the westbound lanes.
As the two approached Gardiners Road the complainant signaled and pulled into the left lane to turn left onto Gardiners Road. The accused then abruptly pulled in front of her and stopped. The accused exited his vehicle and came back, yelling and swearing. The accused made a comment about the complainant’s young child in the vehicle before punching her vehicle and attempting to rip off her mirror.
When the light turned green the accused proceeded only after other drivers began honking their horns. Once on Gardiners Road, the accused drove in the middle of both lanes very slowly. When the accused eventually moved fully into the right lane, the complainant started to pass and the accused threw coffee at the rear side window where her young child was sitting.
On February 10, 2018 the accused was arrested at police headquarters. The accused was later released on conditions with a future court date.
The accused was charged with dangerous driving, harassment by threatening conduct, and mischief.
Kingston Police are looking for any additional witnesses to this incident. The accused was driving a Pontiac Montana and the complainant a Ford Escape. Anyone with information, is asked to please contact Constable Adam Slate at 613-549-4660 ext. 6366 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
