Road rage incident draws guns in Taco Bell parking lot

PARK CITY, Utah — Deputies with the Summit County Sheriff’s Office responded to a road rage incident on Monday that culminated in a gun being drawn in the Kimball Junction Taco Bell parking lot.

According to the report, the incident started when a 37-year-old Park City man was “cut off” by a 53-year-old male in the roundabout by Walmart.

The 53-year-old headed for the Taco Bell drive-thru, while the 37-year-old followed him and parked in the Taco Bell lot. The 37-year-old then exited the vehicle and, according to multiple witnesses, started acting aggressive and yelling profanities “at the top of his lungs” at the man in the drive-thru.

The 53-year-old exchanged profanities and attempted to get out of the car, while the 37-year-old began kicking his car door, causing a dent.

The 53-year-old, still in his vehicle, grabbed the grip of a firearm in his waist but never unholstered the weapon. The man told police he feared for the safety of himself and his four-year-old son, who was also in the vehicle.

The 37-year-old then said, “do you want to shoot me?” And added, “I’ve got a gun too.”

Witnesses said the 37-year-old then pulled out a small-caliber handgun and pointed it at the 53-year-old man.

The 37-year-old was subsequently taken into custody and transported to the Summit County Jail “without incident.”

The man is facing charges of aggravated assault, disorderly conduct, and criminal mischief.
