LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A case of alleged road rage has resulted in the incarceration of a Kentucky National Guardsman.  According to a police report, Michael Sullivan became upset after a driver cut him off, and then slammed on his brakes on I-65 north near the Kennedy Bridge.

That's when officers say he pulled out a handgun and waved it at the other driver.  Police say the victim called police.  Officers found the two drivers pulled over at a gas station.

Jeremy Mull, Clark County Deputy Prosecutor, tells WDRB News, "When motorists feel aggravated they just need to put on the brakes, slow down, get some distance between themselves and the other party, and let the situation cool off -- certainly not escalate by pulling out handguns and waving around or pointing handguns at anybody."

Sullivan is charged with intimidation and having a handgun without a license.
