A 34-year-old man has been charged after police said that he pulled a gun on someone after a road rage incident in Buffalo Grove.
Ariel David, 34, of Buffalo Grove, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, a Class A misdemeanor.
The Buffalo Grove Police Department said that officers responded to a call of a man with a gun in the 1200 block of Farnsworth Lane around 3 p.m. Monday.
Police said that the caller told them he had followed a vehicle to a home in the 1200 block of Farnsworth Lane after a road rage incident. The caller said that David had displayed an offensive hand gesture towards him while they were driving near Freemont Way and Arlington Heights Road.
“Upon coming to a stop at what was later determined to be David’s residence, David retrieved what was described as a small, black pistol from a vehicle parked in his garage. The gun was displayed toward the victim, who immediately called 911,” the Buffalo Grove Police Department said.
David, who has a valid Firearm Owner’s Identification card and a concealed-carry license, was taken into custody without incident. The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office approved the charge against David, and he was released on his own recognizance.
David is scheduled to appear in court on February 4.
