No bail for man who allegedly rammed Mercedes with snowplow

Lawyer for Christopher Davis says it wasn't a deliberate act

PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A man from Pittsfield who authorities say intentionally rammed his snowplow into a Mercedes Benz, then threatened the other driver with a gun, has been held without bail.

Christopher Davis was ruled dangerous by a judge on Monday and sent to jail without bail for four months.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that he previously pleaded guilty to charges including assault with a dangerous weapon and malicious destruction of a motor vehicle.

Prosecutors say the 31-year-old Davis blocked in a Mercedes driven by 32-year-old Derrick Laforest, then rammed the car with his pickup truck with an attached snowplow. Laforest says Davis pointed a handgun at him.

The men had had previous disputes.

Davis’ lawyer characterized what happened as a traffic accident and not a deliberate act, and said there had been no scuffle.
