From Maryland State Police:
A Harford County man has been arrested and charged after it was reported he pointed a handgun at another vehicle at the intersection of South Tollgate Gate Road and MD Rt. 24 yesterday morning.
Bradley R. Krueger, 23, of Abingdon, MD was charged with assault – first degree, assault – second degree and reckless endangerment. He was taken before a court commissioner and released on his own recognizance.
The investigation began around 5:30 a.m. yesterday when the JFK Highway Barrack received a call from a person traveling southbound on I-95 who had just been a victim of a road rage incident. The victim described a gray Chevrolet Trailblazer that was previously being driven in an erratic manner on South Tollgate Road. The victim advised that while stopped at the intersection of South Tollgate and MD Rt. 24, the suspect driving the Trailblazer pointed a handgun at him. In fear for his life, the victim sped off from the intersection only to be followed by the suspect, who was continuing to operate his vehicle in an erratic manner.
Both vehicles exited onto southbound I-95 where the suspect then threw an unknown object out of his vehicle striking the victim’s vehicle. The victim was able to slow to a safe distance from the suspect and call police. The victim continued to observe the vehicle while providing updates of its location to responding troopers.
A short time later, the suspect vehicle pulled into a Royal Farms Store on Pulaski Highway in Middle River where troopers were able to locate and apprehend Krueger without further incident. A subsequent search of Krueger’s vehicle revealed a black BB gun that resembled a semi-automatic handgun.
