Jurupa Valley man arrested in connection with Norco road rage incident
NORCO, Calif., — Authorities this morning announced the arrest of a Jurupa Valley man in connection with a road rage incident that occurred last month on the I-15 Freeway in Norco.
LEADING THE RCNS HEADLINES:
California Highway Patrol began investigating a reported road rage incident involving a firearm on March 23, after a victim reported the altercation.
During the altercation, the driver of a Chevrolet Volt brandished a firearm at another motorist before fleeing northbound on I-15, north of Second Street, according to CHP Officer Javier Navarro.
“Through investigative means, CHP investigators obtained the license plate of the Chevrolet Volt and identified the driver and suspect in the incident,” Navarro explained.
Once the driver and his vehicle were identified, on Wednesday, April 27, CHP officers located the suspect’s vehicle and conducted a traffic enforcement stop in the area of Camino Real north of Live Oak Drive.
After detaining the driver, 63-year-old David Hugh McKay, officers search his vehicle, at which time they located and seized a firearm they say McKay had used during the earlier reported road rage incident.
Based on their investigation, officers arrested McKay and he was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside on suspicion of brandishing a firearm and possession of a loaded and concealed firearm.
Online jail records indicate he has since been released and is no longer in custody.
“The California Highway Patrol takes aggressive driving and road rage seriously and will actively investigate these incidents,” Riverside Area CHP Commander Capt. Levi Miller said of the arrest, adding, “The CHP has highly trained personnel assigned to investigate all crimes occurring on our freeways.”
