Texas Man Pulls Gun During Road Rage Incident, Caught on GoPro [Explicit Language]
Subscribe to Lonestar 99-5 FM on
The incident happened in the Henderson, Nevada area after a driver in a red pickup truck flipped the bird to a group of bikers.
KTNV did a report on the incident that was caught on one of the biker’s GoPro cameras attached to his helmet. He had pulled up next to the truck to ask why they were upset with the bikers.
That’s when an explicit language-filled tirade ensued, followed by the driver of the pickup pulling out and pointing a gun at the biker. The incident occurs at the 2-minute mark in the video above.
On the video, you can clearly see the license plates were from Texas. Henderson police are investigating and may have already issued a warrant for the driver’s arrest.
The biker, who wants to remain anonymous, says he should have never approached their window in the first place and takes responsibility for that. He says you never know who you’re going to deal with and it’s the first and last time he will ever do that.
Here’s what he said on his YouTube channel:
Okay, so a little bit of a back story. We are out riding and on the way to ride some trails off road. One of ours guys did get in the dirt for a min. Someone else came and said that he got it on camera. He went to the back of his vehicle and said he got his plates on camera too. The guy in the red truck didn’t like what he’d seen apparently and started flipping the bird and trying to get a reaction from everyone in the group. I went to ask why they are flipping me and everyone off and this is what resulted of that. Stay safe out there everyone, you never know what kind of person you are going to be dealing with at the end of the day. I am thankful to be alive. That sounds crazy to say, I am glad the gun didn’t go off. Even if it would have been an accident, because he clearly don’t seem to know how to handle the weapon.
Regardless, pointing a gun at someone is never a good idea either. I will give the pickup driver a little benefit of the doubt considering he has a group of bikers all around him, but he certainly seemed to be the aggressor and was never in any danger from the group.
