Road Rage Incident Leads to Three Arrests


On July 23, 2019 at approximately 1:35 am, 911 received a call from a man who stated he was traveling Eastbound on US Hwy 62/412 between Gassville and Mountain Home and he believed that people in a tan Nissan Altima vehicle traveling the same direction was shooting at his vehicle.

Baxter County Sheriff’s Deputies and Mountain Home Police Officers responded and initiated a traffic stop on the suspect vehicle at the intersection of US 62/412 Bypass and Rossi Road.  After an initial investigation by Officers, three suspects were taken into custody.  A search of the vehicle was conducted and a Glock 40 caliber pistol, a Charter Arms 22 magnum pistol, a Smith and Wesson 38 caliber revolver and a set of brass knuckles.  Each of the three suspects claimed ownership of the individual guns.  The weapons and ammunition were taken into evidence.

Investigators believe the incident started when the victim and suspect vehicles began passing each other as they came through the city of Gassville and escalated by one of the suspects firing a weapon at the victim’s vehicle.
