Police said they responded to two road rage calls early on Jan. 1, with the first being at 1:40 a.m. and the second being at 1:45 a.m.

In the first incident, police said a 50-year-old man was driving on Old Derry Road when another driver stopped their vehicle in front of his.

The driver of that vehicle got out and hit the man’s mirror before getting back inside and driving away.

The man was not injured and there was no damage to his car.

In the second incident, just five minutes later, police said a 37-year-old man was driving on Old Derry Road when he got into an altercation with a person who was driving the same vehicle as in the first incident.

Police said the man pulled over and the other driver pulled out a gun and struck him in the head with it.
