JOHNSTOWN, Colo. (CBS4) – A Centennial man was arrested by Weld County sheriff’s deputies for allegedly pointing a gun at other drivers on Interstate 25.
On Monday at 4 p.m. deputies received a call for apparent case of road rage on southbound I-25 near the Johnstown exit where a man was pointing a handgun at least one woman driving a new model Volkswagen Beetle with Wyoming license plates.
The man was seen driving a gray 2004 Toyota Land Cruiser. A witness told sheriff’s deputies the suspect was pointing the barrel of his handgun directly at the driver of the Beetle.
“The driver of the vehicle, the person we arrested, was pointing the gun out the driver side window toward the vehicle off to his left. He was being very brazen about pointing the gun trying to attract someone’s attention, but unfortunately he attracted the attention of the motorist behind him,” said Steve Reams of the Weld County Sheriff’s Office.
Kamaljit Ghuman, 54, of Centennial was arrested and booked into the Weld County Jail. During a search of his vehicle deputies found a loaded 40 caliber handgun.
Sheriff’s deputies have been unable to contact the woman driving the Beetle and so far no other victims have come forward. Since there are no victims to question, Ghuman was only charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct. If a victim comes forward Ghuman could be facing a charge of felony menacing.
Ghuman posted a $2,000 bond at 10:30 p.m. Monday and was released from jail.
Anyone with any information about the case is asked to call the Weld County Sheriff’s Office at (970) 356-4015 ext. 2825.
