By Tim Clifford

Per the SPD Blotter a 35-year-old Burien man was arrested and booked into the King County Jail on Tuesday, July 21, after succumbing to a serious case of road rage while he was taking his son to a firing range.

The incident began around 1 p.m. at a stop light on 1st Ave. S. and S. Lander St. in the SODO district while the suspect with his family in a black Ford Expedition was waiting for a red light next to the victim in the other lane. Once the light turned green the two vehicles were simultaneously cut off by a car that sped through the intersection and ran its red light. The victim honked at this car as it passed.

Moments later the victim was shocked to look over and see the suspect in the Ford Expedition had a gun out and was pointing it at him. The victim slowed down, pulled behind the Expedition and followed it until it stopped in the Krispy Kreme parking lot on 1st Ave.
