Police in Halifax say a 19-year-old was charged in a road rage incident, after he allegedly pulled out a replica handgun on the road.
Halifax RCMP said that at around 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, two men driving in the same direction on Main Street in Dartmouth “got in a heated argument.” One of them then “brandished a handgun.”
Later that evening, police arrested a 19-year-old man from Mineville, N.S. and seized the vehicle involved in the argument.
The next day, police executed a search warrant of the vehicle and found a replica handgun.
The man was released on conditions, and charged with possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
He is set to appear in court in October.
