Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A TRUCK driver was ar­rested by armed af­ter al­legedly wav­ing a gun in a road rage at­tack.

A car driver called the cops af­ter the in­ci­dent which oc­curred when he was trav­el­ling south on the A22 near Uck­field, West Sus­sex, on Mon­day af­ter­noon.

Within an hour armed po­lice de­scended on a house in Hal­land, East Sus­sex, and ar­rested a 48-year-old man for af­fray and pos­ses­sion of an im­i­ta­tion firearm.

A spokesman for Sus­sex Po­lice said: “A man on the A22 re­ported that he had been threat­ened by the driver of a tip­per truck who waved what he be­lieved to be a hand­gun at him on the Uck­field by­pass.”

The sus­pect was later re­leased on po­lice bail un­til Novem­ber 12 while en­quiries continue.
