Road rage incident leads to arrest
A 35-year-old Langley man was taken into custody following a reported road rage incident on Friday morning.
Just before 10 a.m. on May 2, there was an incident involving two vehicles at the intersection of 24 Avenue and 192 Street in Surrey, with a man exiting out of his vehicle with what appeared to be a weapon in his hand, explained Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet.
The other driver remained in his vehicle and left the area, calling in the incident and the vehicle’s license plate number to RCMP.
A short time later, RCMP were able to locate the vehicle and the suspect near a business at Langley Bypass and 202 Street, Paquet said. It was discovered that the Langley man was in possession of a knife and a small quantity of drugs.
The man was arrested without incident and is facing two counts of breach of probation, related to the materials he was found with, Paquet said.
Altogether, four RCMP officers from both the Langley and Surrey detachments were on scene.
