Man wanted for flashing gun during Clarksville road rage incident

Posted:
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -

Clarksville police are looking for a man two teens say pulled a weapon during a road rage incident Sunday.

The victims reported the incident started in the Walmart parking lot on Madison Street.

The teens said they were driving through the parking lot when they came upon a driver stopped in the roadway.

One of the teens told a 911 dispatcher that the man's hazard lights were on and they drove around him.

When they did, the man flew into a rage and started chasing the two drivers.

"This guy just freaked out," one of the drivers told a dispatcher. "He almost hit the back of my car and tried to push me off the road."

The teen driver's friend was in a separate car and also being harassed by the angry driver.

"He is trying to wreck me," that driver said. "He just swerved on me again and I had to swerve."

He continued, "I almost wrecked."

During the chase, the victim continued to give his location in the hopes a police officer would be able to stop the angry driver.

The suspect broke off his pursuit of one of the teens, but continued to chase the other.

That is when the victim who was no longer being chased by the suspect told dispatchers he was armed.

"I have a black Buick with a guy with a gun chasing after a friend of mine," the teen told the dispatcher. "I really need someone to get over here ASAP."

The chase continued up and down State Route 76 in Clarksville near Madison Street for about 10 minutes before the man left the area.

No one was injured in the incident.

The suspect is described as a man of mixed ethnicity. He was wearing a black flat-billed baseball cap.

His car is described as a black older model Buick with a missing headlight.

Anyone with information about the man's identity or whereabouts is urged to call the Clarksville Police Department's tips line at 931-645-8477.
