Kitsap County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested a man on Tuesday for Assault in the First Degree after a road rage incident turned weapons brandishing on State Route 3, according to a KCSO Facebook post.

Around 2:13 p.m., deputies assigned to the Central Kitsap area of the county were dispatched to a recklessly driven truck, exiting SR 3 near the Kitsap Mall. The caller told 911 operators the driver of the truck, a 27-year-old man from Seabeck, was driving at speeds in excess of 90 mph and pointed a handgun at the caller while the truck passed him.

Deputies quickly located the truck on Silverdale Way near Bucklin Hill Rd., where the man was arrested. The man admitted to having a gun in the truck and gave deputies permission to retrieve it. He was booked into Kitsap County Jail for assault in the first degree.
