SCARBOROUGH — A Saco man was arrested Wednesday morning following what police are characterizing as a road rage incident that took place on Route 1.
Scarborough police said a woman called 911 around 11 a.m. to report that a car, operated by a woman, had cut her off in traffic and that the other driver's passenger – a man – flashed a handgun at her in a threatening manner.
The victim was able to provide police with a description of the vehicle as well as a partial license plate number, information that police said proved to be very helpful.
Officers located the vehicle on Route 1 near Hannaford Drive. Both the driver and male suspect were detained.
Aaron Gouzie, 26, of Saco was arrested and charged with criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, carrying a concealed weapon, carrying a loaded firearm in a motor vehicle, trafficking in marijuana, and possession of about six ounces of marijuana.
The female driver was not charged.
