(Ogallala, NE) -- A Missouri man is arrested in Nebraska following a road rage incident during a winter storm.
The Nebraska State Patrol says during a strong winter storm in western Nebraska Saturday evening, troopers were performing traffic control at the Interstate 80 interchange at Ogallala when a vehicle stopped near a trooper and reported that another driver had made a threat while traffic was slowly exiting I-80 due to the weather conditions. Investigators say the victim reported that a semi driver had exited his truck, approached the victim’s vehicle, and threatened the victim with a knife.
The state patrol says troopers investigated the report and located the semi driver, 67 year old Barry Bynum of St. Clair, Missouri. Bynum was arrested for marking terroristic threats, possession of a deadly weapon while committing a felony, and third-degree assault.
