EAST CALAIS, Vt. — Vermont police say a 50-year-old man has been arrested after a reported road rage incident.

Officials say Michael Watsula allegedly passed other motorists in East Calais and nearly caused a crash twice by slamming on breaks. WCAX-TV reports Watsula then slowed down to about 20 miles per hour before waving a gun in the middle of traffic.

Authorities say he was due in court Friday. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.
