The incident occurred as a driver was merging from I-95 onto Plank Road (Rt. 3) at 6 p.m. Monday, Natatia Bledsoe, Fredericksburg Police spokesperson, said. The driver told police a Jeep cut in front of him and when he responded with a hand gesture, the male passenger in the Jeep pointed a handgun at him.
Fredericksburg police working with the Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Office identified the suspect as Justin Ruongrat. During the police interview, Ruongrat turned over a firearm, which was secured as potential evidence.
The 28-year-old has been released by the magistrate on a $2,500 bond.
