A suspect has been arrested after a report that they brandished a firearm at another driver during a case of severe road rage.

According to the police report, the incident occurred at the intersection of Sanger Avenue and Derby Court at 2 p.m. today (Thursday).

“Alexandria Police investigated a report of one driver brandishing a weapon at another driver in the area of Sanger Avenue & Derby Court around 2:00 pm today,” the report said. “The incident stemmed from a road rage incident on N. Beauregard Street and the suspect was taken into custody.”

Alexandria Police senior public information officer Amanda Paga confirmed that the weapon in question was a firearm.

The altercation occurred just outside William Ramsay Elementary School and was unrelated to school activity, but police said the incident still resulted in school dismissal being delayed.

“Due to the proximity of the incident, dismissal at William Ramsay was delayed 15 minutes out of an abundance of caution,” police said. “There was never any threat to the school.”
