Sheriff shares video of suspect who threatened two truckers with handgun


A Tennessee sheriff’s office shared dash cam video in hopes of helping to identify a pickup driver who threatened two truck drivers with a gun on Thursday.

According to the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office TN (BCSO), the incident began around 11:45 a.m. on August 17 on I-75 in Bradley County.

BCSO describes the incident caught on dash cam:

It was reported to deputies that tensions between two or more drivers began as the vehicles were leaving Hamilton County and entering Bradley County, on the northbound side of Interstate-75. As the vehicles were approaching exit 20, the driver of a silver Dodge/RAM pickup truck forced a collision between his vehicle and a semi-truck.

Enraged, the driver of the silver pickup stopped in the travel lane of I-75 and pointed a gun at the driver of the semi truck. A witness to the events, another semi truck driver, stopped to help and was also confronted by the enraged man who pointed the gun at him.

Moments later, the man holstered his weapon, got back in his truck and drove away. No one was reported to be harmed in this incident.

The Bradley County Sheriff’s Office needs the community’s help in identifying the suspect in this case. Please watch the video. If anyone has information which may help investigators, contact 423-728-7338.
