A Juneau man is in custody after an incident in which he allegedly followed another driver, confronted him about being cut off in traffic, and then punched him in the face.
Juneau Police Sargent Chris Gifford said the alleged encounter apparently started Thursday just before noon near the 6000 block of Glacier Highway and ended at the other driver’s residence on Northwood Drive.
Albert Garrison, 47, was later arrested for assault and driving without a license. His vehicle was impounded and he was lodged at Lemon Creek Correctional Center.
The 41-year old driver of the other vehicle reported a minor injury to his face.
No alcohol was reported to be involved in the incident.
