A Maryland state soldier on leave is charged in an alleged road rage incident


The Baltimore County Police arrested a guard soldier with the Maryland State Police for apparently pointing a gun at another driver during a road rage incident while driving. He was on Highway 695 in Baltimore on Sunday night.

The suspect, identified as Zachary Tyler Bowen, 28, reportedly accelerated alongside a man and a woman driving on the outer loop of the highway after the pair changed lanes. Bowen would then have pointed a handgun at them. We did not know immediately what had led to the alleged altercation.

Passengers from the other vehicle were able to identify Bowen to the police and he was later arrested at his home in Baltimore County without incident, police said.


He is charged with two counts of first degree assault, two counts of second degree assault and the use of a firearm in a criminal offense.

Bowen, who has been a state police officer since 2012, was suspended without pay, according to the Associated Press.
