Saskatoon police reported Friday they have charged a man in connection with an alleged road rage incident that happened early the day before.
Police were called to a minor traffic collision just before 2 a.m. Thursday.
While officers were en route, they were told one of the drivers had left the scene of the crash, and that the second driver had chased them. The pair allegedly got into a confrontation near the intersection of 22nd Street West and Betts Avenue.
One of the drivers allegedly pulled a .22-calibre rifle and pointed it at the other motorist. Police said the suspect then abandoned the vehicle he was driving and took off on foot.
Police haven’t released the suspect’s name. In a news release Friday afternoon, they said he hails from Sherwood Park, Alta.
Officers allegedly found the man in possession of methamphetamine after arresting him early Friday morning in the lobby of a hotel off Marquis Drive.
The suspect is due to appear before a Justice of the Peace Friday on two counts of pointing a firearm and a drug possession charge.
