Driver: Road rage incident ends with man pulling gun

Posted: Updated:
INMAN, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A young man said a driver almost ran him off the road, followed him home and then pulled a gun on him.

It happened Wednesday night along Highway 11 in Spartanburg County.

"Heck, I was coming home from church, it was just random," said Josh Chrobak.

Chrobak said he left Mountain View Baptist Church and started driving home when he noticed a white truck in his rear view mirror.

"I seen this guy coming up on my bumper real quick," explained Chrobak.

He said the driver then crossed over the double yellow line on Highway 11.

"He passed me, got in front of me and slammed on his breaks. I didn't want him to hit me so I go around him. I tried to get away," said Chrobak.

Chrobak said the driver followed him into his driveway and started cussing at him.

"There were kids across the street so I said, 'look, stop cursing at me.' I asked him politely if he wanted to talk about it you know just pull your car over we can talk about this. He pulled a black revolver out on me, pointed it at me and said a few choice words," said Chrobak.

Chrobak said the man eventually sped off without ever saying why he was upset.

He described the man's vehicle as an older model white Chevrolet S-10 with a partial tag of NWS out of North Carolina.

If you know anyone with a truck matching the description call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIMESC
