Reported road rage, firearm leads to OPP high-risk takedown in Wasaga Beach

Two people from Penetanguishene have been charged in an alleged road rage incident that led Huronia West OPP to conduct a high-risk takedown of a vehicle after officers received a report one of the drivers pointed a firearm.

Police were contacted around 2 p.m. on Tuesday following several calls about two drivers apparently engaged in a road rage incident.

"Two of these callers were occupants from the vehicles involved, one stating they were being run off the road and the other stating an occupant pointed a firearm at them," according to an OPP news release on Wednesday.

As both vehicles were headed into Wasaga Beach, OPP say they were able to stop them and conduct a high-risk takedown of the vehicle alleged to be containing a gun.

The suspects were arrested without incident and a weapon was seized.

A 32-year-old faces four firearm-related offences and a charge of uttering threats causing death or bodily harm.

A 33-year-old was charged with dangerous operation of a vehicle.

Police request that anyone with information or video footage of the incident to call the Huronia West OPP at 705-429-3575 or at 1-888-310-1122.
