A 38-year-old man was arrested in Coeur d’Alene on Tuesday morning, shortly after a road rage incident in which he allegedly pointed a gun at another motorist on Interstate 90, according to the Idaho State Police.

A 911 caller reported that an aggressive driver had pointed a gun at them about 9 a.m., and authorities found the suspect shortly afterward at the Kootenai County Courthouse, the ISP said in a news release.

State troopers, Coeur d’Alene police officers and Kootenai County sheriff’s deputies took part in the search, the ISP said.

The suspect, identified as Jared R. Vansickle, was booked into jail on an aggravated assault charge at about 9:30 a.m.
