ANDOVER, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a man pulled an unloaded gun on a snow plow driver during a road rage incident as the first winter snows fell on Massachusetts.

Police say Michael McCullom had been attempting turn onto North Main Street on Tuesday morning and nearly crashed into a snow plow. The 51-year-old Andover resident then followed the plow into a parking lot where the two drivers had an argument that turned physical.

McCullom pulled out an unloaded firearm and was arrested at the scene after a bystander called police. He was arraigned on assault and battery and assault with a dangerous weapon charges.

The unidentified snow plow driver also faces charges including assault and battery. McCullom’s lawyer says he was attacked first and pulled out the gun in self-defense.
