MADISON (WSAU-Wheeler News) Two Janesville residents face possible criminal charges, after one of them allegedly pointed a handgun at another driver on Madison's Beltline. It happened Wednesday afternoon. A 19-year-old motorist told police that he was merging onto the expressway with a window open, when a passenger in a pick-up truck tossed change through the window. The 19-year-old followed the truck -- and when he got next to the vehicle, the 42-year-old male driver reportedly was pointing a gun at him.
A 51-year-old female passenger in the truck denied throwing the coins, and she said the other driver actually cut them off and flashed an obscene gesture. Police said the woman had a knife in her handbag when she was arrested, and a loaded handgun was found in the truck. The pick-up driver was booked into the Dane County Jail on possible charges of reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct while armed, illegally carrying a concealed weapon, and possessing a firearm as a convicted felon. The woman was jailed and booked for concealed weapons' possession and disorderly conduct.
