PLYMOUTH – Police on Monday said they charged a man in connection with a road rage incident in June in which a suspect pointed a handgun at another motorist in the presence of a young child.
Floyd Morey, 43, of 30 Carter Road, faces charges of second-degree threatening and second-degree breach of peace.
Police on Monday said they were able to identify him with the assistance of the public, as police in June posted information about the incident on Facebook and asked for help with his identity.
According to police, the road rage incident occurred on June 13. Police allege Morey made a restricted turn from Carter Road, onto Main Street, nearly hitting another motorist. The other motorist yelled at Morey, who then pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the victim, police said.
According to police, Morey had a 9-year-old relative with him at the time of the incident.
The state’s Department of Children and Families has been notified of the incident.
Police said Morey had a valid pistol permit at the time of the incident. He is free without having to post bond and is scheduled to appear in New Britain Superior Court on Oct. 11.
