Toni Yates is in Wallington with the latest on the road rage incident.

Dash cam video shows a scary road rage incident in New Jersey where a man pulled a gun on another driver.

The incident happened during the evening commute on July 8, starting on River Drive in Passaic.

Police said a government security guard who was heading home from work stopped to let a car-hauling tractor trailer turn into a dealership. The driver behind him became enraged, and "began "hard breaking" and engaged in a series of speeding up and slamming on his brakes."

The situation quickly escalated.

After the truck finished turning and both drivers continued on over the Gregory Avenue Bridge into Wallington, police said the angry driver, who at some point passed the guard's car, slowed down and held out a black handgun outside his car window and pointed it at the guard.

The guard had a dash camera that recorded the incident. Police tracked down the driver using the license plate.

While investigating, police found a black airsoft BB gun in the passenger seat of the car.

"No matter how frustrated or agitated you get, you should never vocalize it or use body language to vocalize your expression," Lt. Shawn Kudlacik of the Wallington Police Department said.

Officers arrested 24-year-old Vincent Buono of Passaic. He was charged with possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes and aggravated assault. His bail was set at $75,000.
