(Laurel, MD) – Maryland State Police arrested a Pennsylvania man after he reportedly brandished a weapon during a road rage incident.

The accused is identified as Thomas Edward Scott, 26, of Hanover, Pennsylvania. Scott is charged with first and second degree assault, and reckless endangerment. Scott was the driver and sole occupant of a dark red Ford Mustang with Pennsylvania tags.

The victim is not being identified at this time. The victim was driving a dark gray Jeep Cherokee at the time of the incident. He was uninjured during the incident.

Yesterday around 12 noon, troopers from the Glen Burnie Barrack received a 9-1-1 call from the victim with the report of a road rage incident on northbound on Route 295, south of Route 197 in Prince Georges County. The victim reported the driver of a Ford Mustang, later identified as Scott, pointed a handgun in his direction.

Troopers immediately responded to the area and located the Ford Mustang traveling on westbound I-695 at Nursery Road in Anne Arundel County.
