WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) - Police say a man who accused two people in a road rage incident in Wausau held them at gunpoint until officers arrived.
A 49-year-old Appleton man called 911 from Highway 29 Tuesday afternoon saying the van he had just passed was ramming his SUV from behind. The dispatcher told the caller to pull off the road and wait for officers.

Don’t bring keys to a gun fight.
Has mug shots.. The male is wearing an Obama shirt..
I’m concerned for the road rage victim with the gun because it didn’t happen in Texas.
I was doing great with the article until I came upon that hated word “allowed” it always spins me off into an angry depression complete with expletives.
Permission (when it applies to the Law) is a close second
The “attackers” are indeed VERU FORTUNATE as we in Wisconsin have the castle doctrine and are allowed to protect ourselves. All the gun owner needed to do was shoot them both and he would still walk. “I was in danger of my life”. Nuff said.
Hence the major ammo purchases by DHS: 142,000 more armed serfs to monitor and possibly go after when the gun bans start.
Surprised that that the media didn’t spin the headline “Man pulls gun on driver in road rage incident”.
If he had pulled the trigger in self-defense, it certainly could have run that way nationally in an echo of the Travin Martin shooting (replace “pulls gun on” with “shoots”).
I’d love to see the whole shirt. I tried googling it but you get the phone book of images and none match.
Same deal in Colorado. If you are reasonably in fear for your life, use deadly force to protect it. I'd say being outnumbered and physically attacked by two adults of questionable sanity and sobriety qualifies.
Have you already forgotten that unfortunate boating accident we were in, only yesterday? All those guns and ammo, irretrievably lost. Sad.
A coupla real beauties there.
Tattooed scumbag and an idiot.
Why do women mutilate their bodies with ink?
It’s a sin to take the beautiful body God gave them and mark it up with ink.If my daughter showed up with a tattoo I would kick her ass.But she isn’t that stupid.
Yeah, there’s not enough for tineye to search on it.
Meth. It’s always meth.
That ain’t meth. They’re both to well fleshed.
After ramming him from behind with their van how about attempted murder too? Automobile accidents have a very high probability of a lethal outcome.
When you figure out the ink and women thing, let me know. What few times I go model shopping (hire for a gig), visible ink is an automatic fail.
I’m biased I admit and part of it is probably due to me having a rather large birthmark and. I didn’t get a choice where others did. Flaming prepared for....
Everyone, and I mean everyone, I’ve met regrets getting a tattoo when they grow up.
Clintoon and BeeHOe’s people?
What’s up with that t-shirt?
You too? Seems there's a lot boat capsizings here of late. Ohio river is fast and DEEP too!
There was one mistake here. Carjackers and worse will often cause a minor accident, hoping that the other driver will pull over so they can attack them. So the way around this is to negotiate with the 911 operator so that you only stop where officers are waiting.
This even applies if you are in a minor accident in an unsafe area. You drive away from the scene of the accident and look for the nearest police car or police station, and tell them that you left the scene because it was in an unsafe area. In most circumstances the police will give you a pass for leaving the scene.
Even if you are armed, try to avoid a confrontation, as there may be several of them, all of whom could be armed, and you could be outgunned.
“If he had pulled the trigger in self-defense, it certainly could have run that way nationally in an echo of the Travin Martin shooting (replace pulls gun on with shoots).”
Only, if the “victims” were black. In this scenario it would have gone into the “journalist” circular file.
When I was a youth working in a gas station, some punks stole some cases of oil cans from the pump island. I told the boss, and he yelled at me to toss him the gun (he had me carrying a revolver in my pocket since I handled cash from customers and the till outside). So he jumps into his truck with the gun and takes off after the thieves. Ten minutes later, he comes back without the oil cases and looking shook up.
"What happened boss?" I asked. He said he cornered them in a dead-end street, jumped out with the gun and demanded the oil. Four of them jumped out of their car, all with guns. So he let them keep it and got the heck out of there. Outgunned. Glad when I left that job, as I was often the only one working there at night.
