Oconomowoc man charged with pointing gun during Waukesha road rage

Feb. 01, 2013 3:44 p.m. | Getting cut off in traffic is never pleasant, and many Wisconsin drivers might be double irked if the offending car is from Illinois.

But police say an Oconomowoc man went too far when he addressed the situation by pulling a gun during a road rage incident last month in Waukesha.

According to a criminal complaint:

Two drivers had just exited I-94 about 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 4 when one cut off the other as they pulled onto N. Grandview Blvd. heading south.

They each sped and slowed down, changed lanes and swore at each other once they came to a red light.
