Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) say a Goderich resident is facing charges for assault after a road rage incident in the lakeside community on the weekend.

On Sunday, at around 2:50 p.m. OPP officers were called to Bayfield Road to investigate a possible road rage incident.

Upon speaking with the victim police say they learned the accused had an issue with the victim’s driving and began honking at him because he was slow to respond to a green light.
