Driver threatens three people with handgun

By The Spokesman-Review
 

A man threatened three people with a gun during a road rage incident on Wednesday in Spokane Valley, police said today.

Jarred Woods, 30, was contacted by a Spokane County sheriff’s deputy after his alleged victims provided 911 dispatch with his license plate number.

The victims, a man and two juvenile females, said they were driving south on Argonne Road near Wellesley Avenue when they passed Woods’ vehicle and he swerved to the left, causing them to nearly swerve into oncoming traffic, according to the sheriff’s office.

Woods then displayed a handgun and yelled at the victims as they called 911, the sheriff’s office said.

Woods has a concealed weapons permit.

A deputy called his phone after running his license plate number and located him in the area of Argonne and Trent Avenue. He was contacted there and first said he only kept the gun in his trunk, but then admitted it to pointing it at the occupants of another vehicle because he feared the driver, according to the sheriffs office.

A .40 caliber Baretta handgun was seized from the trunk of Woods’ vehicle. He was arrested on three counts of intimidation with a firearm.
