Road rage leads to charges

On April 13, at 6:23 p.m., state police received a 911 call from Corey Edwards, age 25 of White River Junction, stating that while driving south on Interstate 91 near mile marker 54 in the town of Windsor, a road rage incident occurred between him and another operator.  Edwards advised that the other operator was all over the road, tailgating him, and then pulled alongside him and pointed a pistol at him.

State police, with the assistance of Weathersfield Police Department, subsequently stopped Christopher Lee Rourke, age 21 of Claremont, N.H., on Route 131 in the town of Weathersfield. Rourke was in possession of  a semi-automatic pistol and was taken into custody, then transported to Springfield Police Department for processing.

Rourke was later released with a criminal citation and is scheduled to appear in Vermont Superior Court, Windsor Criminal Division, on May 8 at 8 a.m. to answer to the charges of Reckless Endangerment, Negligent Operation, Criminal Threatening, Attempted Aggravated Assault.
