    Bad: road rage and a CPL holder involved

    Davison man charged in road rage on I-75 in Bay County - MLive.com

    There was more in the local paper, where they told the CPL holders side of the story. He claims the guy in the Cadillac was swerving at them as he passed, so he pulled his gun to get the driver to back off. Bad situation all around, idiots with short fuses driving 3000 lb killing machines at 80 miles an hour.

    Davison man charged in road rage on I-75 in Bay County

    A Davison man faces a felonious assault charge after an alleged road rage incident in Bay County.

    Christopher A. Horosko faces a 2 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 18, preliminary hearing.

    District Judge Scott Newcombe will decide whether the evidence provides probable cause for Horosko, 23, to face charges in Circuit Court.

    Police allege Horosko was a passenger in a Chevrolet Impala about 3 p.m., June 13, when he pointed a handgun at the victim on southbound Interstate 75 near Beaver in Kawkawlin Township.

    The victim claims he was traveling in the third lane when he pulled up behind the Impala.

    He said the driver slammed on the brakes causing him to have to reactivate the cruise control, police said. The victim said he maneuvered his Cadillac into the middle lane.

    As he passed the Impala, the passenger made an unkind gesture then pointed the weapon at him, police allege.

    Officers in Buena Vista Township arrested Horosko and seized a loaded .357 Smith and Wesson, police claim. Horosko has a permit to carry the weapon.
    Horosko is an idiot! Probably not a member of this forum!

    If convicted of a felony, say bye bye to not only his permit but also ever being able to possess any firearms ever again!

    A real brain trust!

    Probably only had his permit a couple of weeks!

    Persons with short tempers and bad judgment should not carry a firearm.

    Well, he won't have to worry about carrying a firearm anymore! At least, not legally!

    Considering the number of CCW holders across the country, I find it encouraging that there are so few stories like this.

    I hope he's in a romantic mood, because he's going to be kissing his CCW permit goodbye.

    But at this time you can bet the media will jump on every one of them.

    The simplest solution

    The easiest solution to an idiot on the highway is to just apply pressure to the brake pedal. Why don't people realize this? Any idiot in a road rage state is not going to SLOW DOWN. All you have to do is let them get ahead of you so you can get their plate number and call 911.

    I had to do that traveling to Wythe Co. VA to a family reunion. One vehicle kept driving in the passing lane on the Intestate. He and his lady were arguing violently and he was weaving all over the road, speeding up, slowing down etc. I was a passenger in our vehicle so I got their license number, make and model and called the VA State Police to report them at the mile marker we were at when I got the dispatcher. Road rage is no laughing matter, it's dangerous and often turns deadly.
