A Christian County man was arrested Saturday night after allegedly pointing a shotgun and an assault rifle at fellow drivers during a road rage incident on the Western Kentucky Parkway near White Mills.
Lucas Justice, 18, of Crofton, has been charged with first-degree wanton endangerment.
According to a citation from the Hardin County Sheriff’s Department, Justice drove beside another vehicle while heading eastbound on the parkway and showed the two occupants of the vehicle the barrel of a shotgun. When the other car fell several car lengths behind Justice, he reportedly exited the parkway at the White Mills/Eastview exit and hit his brakes.
After the car drove past Justice, he is said to have pointed an AR-15 out of the driver’s window of his vehicle. When police later located Justice, they reportedly found a loaded shot gun and an unloaded AR-15.
First-degree wanton endangerment is a Class D felony, punishable by one to five years in prison, if convicted.
Justice is lodged in the Hardin County Detention Center on a $1,500 cash bond. He is expected to appear before Hardin District Court this morning through video arraignment.
