CUMMING, Ga. — An angry driver threatened a family in a car with a bat and what appeared to be a gun, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

At about 3:30 p.m. on June 8, a man called deputies and said a reckless driver was behind them going northbound on Ga. 400 near McFarland Parkway.

He said the driver of a gold Chevrolet Silverado truck was cutting in and out of traffic and flashing his brights. He said the driver was being aggressive, threatening him with a baseball bat and was taking pictures of his car. He said it looked as if the driver threatened him with a possible gun.

Deputies pulled the truck over and the driver, identified as Neil McDonald, 56, of Cumming, said the victim cut him off and began verbally arguing with him.

McDonald said the victim pulled a gun on him, so he drove off trying to escape him.

When deputies talked to the victims — a husband and wife who had their two young children with them — their stories matched.

Deputies said they found a camera in the suspect’s truck with pictures of the victim’s car.

Deputies arrested the driver for aggressive driving, a misdemeanor and he was taken to Forsyth County Detention Center.
