CLARK COUNTY, IN (WAVE) - A Kentucky National Guardsman allegedly pulled a gun on another driver during a case of road rage.  on the Fourth of July.

According to the Clark County Prosecutor Jeremy Mull, Michael Sullivan became enraged after he felt he was cut off in traffic and pulled a gun on another driver while crossing the Kenney Bridge from Kentucky to Indiana.

Both vehicles involved in the incident pulled off at the Veteran's Parkway Marathon Gas Station and were met by police.

Sullivan told police he pulled out the gun in an effort to intimidate the other driver. Mull said, "When motorists feel aggravated they just need to put on the brakes, slow down, get some distance between themselves and the other party put them and let the situation cool off. Certainly not escalate it by pulling out handguns and waving around or pointing handguns at anybody."

Sullivan was taken into custody. He is charged with intimidation with a deadly weapon and carrying a handgun without a license.

According to the report, investigators spoke with his supervisors at the Kentucky National Guard and told them what happened.
