A Madison woman was threatened with a gun Monday morning during a road rage incident on the city's East Side, the rager screaming at the woman after she flipped him off.
It happened at about 9:25 a.m. at the intersection of East Washington Avenue and North Stoughton Road, Madison police said.
The 39-year-old woman was driving on North Stoughton Road with her 18-year-old daughter in the car, when the driver of an SUV behind her started honking when she took too long to start driving when a red light turned green.
"The weapon came into play after she gave the finger to the driver of the other vehicle," said police spokesman Joel DeSpain.
The driver of the Mazda CX-5 SUV pulled alongside the woman's car and swerved toward her, forcing her to pull into another traffic lane.
