WAUSAU - The state's concealed carry gun law is in the spotlight again after a fight stemming from a road rage incident in Wausau ended when one person involved pulled a gun.
That 48-year-old Appleton man has a concealed carry permit.
As we've reported, police arrested 30-year-old Nicholas Flanagan and 26-year-old Jessica Ratliff.
Investigators say the Menominee, Michigan couple attacked Scott Van Patter after their vehicles collided.
Wausau police provided FOX 11 with dash cam video showing officers arriving on the scene of a fight at a Menards parking lot Tuesday.
Police say Van Patter was physically assaulted by Flanagan and Ratliff.
Van Patter eventually pulled out his .40 caliber handgun.

I have been is a situation similar to this. In my case there was no collision. I pulled up behind a stationary car on a narrow entrance ramp to a mall. There was no way to get around, and after approximately 30 seconds (and almost beng rear-ended by another car coming up behind me) I blew my horn. This caused the driver in front of me to burst out of his car and race back to confront me. By his appearancee was obviously disoriented and emotionally unstable. He started pounding on my window and screaming obscenities. I didn't have a firearm with me at the time but I had a LE-grade OC dispenser. As soon as the attacker saw the OC he got back in his car and drove away.
Is there a Menominee,MI in addition to a Menominee, WI ?
