LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A Colorado man used a stolen gun to threaten a fellow driver on Interstate 80 on Tuesday, the Nebraska State Patrol said.

Around 2 p.m., the patrol was made aware of a man who pointed a handgun toward another driver near Elm Creek, which is about 20 miles west of Kearney.

A trooper later found the suspect’s vehicle and pulled it over on I-80, just south of Lexington.

The driver, 40-year-old Jose Rolison of Denver, was found with a stolen handgun, according to the patrol.

He was arrested on suspicion of possessing a stolen firearm, terroristic threats, use of a firearm to commit a felony, possession of a concealed weapon and possession of marijuana.

Rolison was lodged in the Dawson County Jail.

The patrol reminds drivers to report suspected road rage incidents by calling 911.
