Winnipeg driver rammed, threatened during Kildonan road rage ordeal

A Winnipeg man was arrested after an armed road rage incident Thursday afternoon, thanks to a group of witnesses who held him until police arrived.

Police were told one driver cut off another on Main Street near Chief Peguis Trail, and began slamming on his brakes, causing several near-misses.

The driver then let the other motorist pass him, then rammed into the back of her vehicle, causing her to swerve into a snowbank.
