CLARKSVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — A Clarksville man was arrested following a road rage incident Monday night near the border of Clark and Floyd counties, Indiana State Police said Tuesday.

Police say they received a call from a woman around 7 p.m. Monday saying she accidentally cut off a Kia SUV while merging onto Interstate 265 westbound from Interstate 65. The woman told police the driver of the Kia, 28-year-old Dakota Riggs, pointed a revolver at her from behind and rested it on his side-view mirror as he followed her.

The woman eventually slowed down and got behind Riggs. She kept providing police with information as the cars entered Floyd County.

An officer found a Kia matching the description of Riggs’ vehicle at a gas station in Georgetown.

Seven other people — two adults and five children — were in the vehicle with Riggs, according to police.

Riggs was arrested and charged with intimidation with a deadly weapon, criminal recklessness with a firearm, pointing a firearm, neglect of a dependent, possession of a handgun without a license and possession of marijuana.
