Man Accused Of Pulling Gun During Road Rage Incident

The man has been charged with aggravated menacing

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 .

Ah yes, being angry at someone in traffic is always a good reason to pull out a weapon.

Hello people I hate to say this but this whole thing is just way to funny to me. This was the gun fight at the OK coral, no? One person forgot to bring his or her gun, LOL. To me this was a mutual fight, except the one person who wanted to duke it out got their butt kicked by the dude with the gun, LOL. I think they both are just as guilty, because they both stopped and got out of their car. (Suppose his mother was in the car, that would have been a mess, LOL) I do not think that they were going to debate who was in the right or wrong here, do you? As for right and wrong how about cooperation please, especially this place. I drive there all of the time and it appears to me no one uses their turn singles or pay attention to what is going on. Of course it is the other cars fault, I do not care, please drive with common sense thanks, God bless.

See it would be a mess if his or her mother was in the car because with or without the gun one of them would have gotten whooped, and may even had been the son who she was driving with, LOL, get it? Those are the good old days people, really. God bless.
