An investigation into a road rage incident on New Years Day lead Sioux Falls police to the suspect, who was already wanted for a past weapons violation.

According to Captain Loren Mcmanus, on Tuesday (Jan 1st) just before 2:00 AM, the call came into police about a road rage incident that began at 12th and West Avenue where a passenger allegedly showed a handgun out a vehicle window, although no shots were fired.

The victim had followed the vehicle to a certain point, near 6th and West and stopped the pursuit.  Police found two subjects in the car at 8th and Lake. The passenger matched the description of the one who had shown the gun and was also found to have an outstanding warrant.
