Man Displays Handgun in Road Rage Incident

The incident occurred Saturday near the intersection of York and Joppa roads.

A Phoenix man threatened four people, including two children, with a handgun during a Saturday road rage incident, according to Baltimore County police.

At 1:33 p.m., John Emmett, 52, of the 4000 block of Cloverland Drive allegedly pulled out the handgun and pointed it at the victims near the intersection of York and Joppa roads. All parties remained in the seats and vehicles during the incident, according to a Baltimore County police report.

Police later located Emmett's vehicle and positively identified him as the suspect, police said. A handgun was reportedly found under his vehicle's driver seat.

Darnell, a relatively small number of people on here are feeling sympathy, most are not, which is fine. Assuming he did what is alleged, I don't feel any for him either. BUT, he has NOT been convicted yet. If a judge or jury finds him guilty, throw the book at him. But can't we wait for a trial before we decide on the punishment?

HuntValley Woman I am appalled & distrurbed by the comments I am reading! All of you assinine jackasses except for a few are quoting & talking about gun laws & permits; but NEITHER one of you JackAssB*^es are thinking about nor giving a thought or flying fig newton about the CHILDREN in the car. So what Dr. John Emmett, an Oral Surgeon has a permit for his handgun! It doesn't make him a GOD nor does it give him the right to brandish & wield it at a FAMILY!!!! Get real people, IT COULD HAVE BEEN YOU & YOUR CHILDREN. Let's not forget about the maniac who brazenly killed 27 children & adults. Just because you have prestige does not put you above the law, nor should it or allow you to disregard humanity. What if Dr. John Emmett decided to whip out his gun while you, your children or one of your family members were having oral surgery in his office?!?!?! What are you going to do? Where Kevlar while in the reception area? FOOLS Think about the children

Anybody who says something this stupid should be arrested and required to submit to a mental health evaluation.

The Gas Giant who responded is absolutely 100% correct as I also carry. He is the "poster Child" of your response, your responsibility, and the fact that a few seconds of mis-judgement or "getting even", will change your life as you know it forever . After reading his comment, I did not read anymore as they are superfluous. Just read the sun's road rage death of a New Jersey policeman shooting a man to death after they both pulled over for road rage. Was this all woth it? Stupid, Stupid, Stupid.If you refute what I or the Gas Giant said, then live in you cave of ignorant bliss. I guess you do need ignorant,stupid people in this world to allow smart people to be recognized
