Road rage incident leads to Sacramentan’s arrest
A Sacramento man was arrested Wednesday night after allegedly threatening another driver with a handgun during a road rage incident on Interstate 80, Fairfield police said.
Fairfield police, Vacaville police and California Highway Patrol officers arrested Brandon Jackson, 28, on suspicion of criminal threats and illegal possession of a firearm shortly after an altercation with another vehicle, the Fairfield Police Department said in a news release.
The incident began about 8 p.m., when a female driver called 911 to report that someone threw an object at her car while driving on eastbound I-80 near North Texas Street, the news release said.
Both vehicles exited the freeway and came to a stop next to each other at a red light, and Jackson allegedly yelled at the victim while pointing a handgun in her face, police said.
The vehicles parted ways, but Jackson was located by officers and arrested without incident. A search of his vehicle turned up an illegally possessed firearm, according to the news release.
Jackson was booked into the Solano County jail.
