We usually think of road rage as a scourge of the summer months. Not so reports the Star Tribune.
Raging driver cuts off, blocks another, allegedly pulls gun

Minneapolis police on Wednesday were investigating a driver's complaint that when he asked another motorist to move his car, the man pulled a gun on him and flew into a rage.

The complainant, Steve Haughton, 41, of Savage, said in an interview that he was driving on 22nd Street E. near Peavey Field in s outh Minneapolis on Tuesday when another vehicle cut him off and blocked his way.

Haughton said he lowered his window and asked the man to move his car. He said the man pulled a gun, threatened him with it and cursed at him loudly. "He just started losing his mind," Haughton said.

Haughton, who never left his pickup, fled and called police, giving them the other vehicle's license plate number.

No arrests had been made Wednesday, but the investigation was continuing, said police spokesman Sgt. Steve McCarty.
