The Union County Sheriff’s Office say they arrested Chandler Williams, 22, who is accused of pointing a gun at a driver and then firing a shot from the gun during a road rage incident in Monroe, NC.
Deputies say the incident happened on July 25th near the traffic circle at Wesley Chapel Road and Goldmine Road. Chandler Williams, 22, was charged with assault by pointing a gun.
