ALPHARETTA, Ga. – A case of road rage landed a Lawrenceville man in jail after he allegedly brandished a gun at a driver July 31.

A truck driver told Forsyth County deputies a driver in a white sport utility vehicle threatened him with a handgun on Ga. 400 about midnight, in a case of road rage. Police caught up to the SUV near Northridge Road and spoke to the driver, Abdulrasheed Adeola Yusuf, 26, of Lawrenceville, who allegedly admitted to taking out his pistol after the truck had nearly run him off the road twice. He denied pointing it at the driver, merely showing it to him.

Yusuf’s license was found to be suspended and he admitted to drinking earlier that night. He was arrested for DUI and driving on a suspended license.
