Tyler C. Keiser of Rangely Drive in Trumbull is accused of pointing a black handgun at another driver during a road rage incident in Westport Thursday afternoon.
Westport Police said Keiser, 21, pulled the gun on another motorist as he was traveling on east on Post Road East near Bulkley Avenue about 5 p.m.
"It was reported that Keiser cut off the victim who then flashed his high beams at Keiser," according to the arrest report. "Reportedly, Keiser then exited his vehicle and brandished the firearm."
The alleged victim called 911 after he crossed the Fairfield town line and reported "a white male jumped out of his vehicle and pointed a black hand gun at him," according to Westport police.
The complainant obtained the license plate of the suspect's vehicle and relayed the information to police, according to the report. Fairfield police spotted the suspect car on Pemburn Drive and conducted a felony stop, Fairfield police spokesperson Lt. James Perez said Friday.
Police recovered a black Glock 9mm handgun on the suspect's waist, which was safely taken from Keiser without incident, according to Perez.
Keiser was charged by Westport police with second-degree threatening, second-degree reckless endangerment and second-degree breach of the peace. He has a gun permit and the gun is registered, police said.
Fairfield police further issued Keiser an infraction for possession of less than 4 ounces of marijuana, which K-9 Officer Ruger found in the car, Perez said.
Keiser was released on a $2,500 bond and is scheduled to appear in the Norwalk Court on March 8.
