A Lincoln man is behind bars after threatening to kill another man while driving in rush hour traffic.
Lincoln Police say just after 5:00 Wednesday night, a 36 year old man reported that he was threatened by a man with a gun during a road rage incident. The victim said that he was westbound on O Street when a blue Ford Escape cut him off.
The victim says he then honked at the other driver and went around the Escape. The driver of the Escape, 34 year old Stephen Vera, began to follow the victim into a parking lot of a restaurant. As Vera reportedly exited his vehicle with a black handgun, the victim got out of his car as well.
Vera then allegedly put the gun to the victim's neck and threatened to kill him. A victim’s family member exited the car and Vera reportedly stated “Are you going to watch me kill your husband?" before getting back into his car and driving away.
The victim and witnesses were able to provide the license plate number and suspect description which came back to Vera, who was reached by phone and eventually agreed to meet with officers. Vera was arrested for Terroristic Threats and Use of a Weapon to Commit a Felony.
