The Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) arrested a truck driver from Missouri over the weekend after an alleged road rage incident involving a knife.
The incident occurred around 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 25, during a major winter storm in western Nebraska, according to a news release from NSP.
As NSP troopers were performing traffic control at the I-80 interchange at Ogallala, “a vehicle stopped near a trooper and reported that another driver had made a threat while traffic was slowly exiting I-80 due to the weather conditions.”
The driver told troopers that a semi truck driver had exited his cab, approached and threatened them with a knife.
NSP investigated the complaint and later arrested truck driver Barry Bynum, 67, of St. Clair, Missouri.
NSP says that Bynum was charged with making terroristic threats, possession of a deadly weapon while committing a felony, and third-degree assault.
Bynum was booked into the Keith County Jail.
