A man from Pennsylvania is now facing
gun charges stemming from an alleged road rage incident. According to the police report,
the man followed a family from the road all the way to their home. The
gun charges come from the supposed act where he pulled a gun out of his
car and insinuated threats.

who was being pursued pulled out his own gun. At that point, the first

The man apparently admitted to these actions in a written statement given
to Pennsylvania police. He was officially charged with assault, gun crimes
and reckless endangerment. There is no indication if he has secured legal

residents, especially considering the serious consequences that a conviction
might entail. In such cases, however, accused individuals have the right

fight the charges made against them, keeping in mind that the burden of
proof always rests with the prosecution. Others may decide that negotiating
plea agreements with officials could be the best chance for a positive
outcome in their specific situations.
