A man is accused of pointing a gun at another driver during a road rage-induced altercation Saturday afternoon in Mentor.
Another driver cut off 55-year-old Martin Sroczynski, Mentor Police Sgt. Michael Majernik said.
The two drivers began arguing and other driver raised his middle finger to Sroczynski, Majernik said.
Both drivers stopped their cars and got out near the intersection of Hopkins and Plain Road. Then Sroczynski pulled a gun out, Majernik said.
Sroczynski pointed the laser scope of the gun at his rival's chest, Majernik said. Sroczynski later told police that he did it so the situation would not escalate.
The two drivers went their separate ways without violence and the other driver called the police about the incident. Sroczynski turned himself in and was charged with aggravated menacing.
Sroczynski is allowed to have and carry a firearm because he has a carry concealed weapon license, Majernik said.
Sroczynski is scheduled to appear Tuesday morning in .
