Concealed carry helps Appleton man during road rage incident


WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - Supporters of Wisconsin’s concealed weapons law insist it will save lives – and that might have been the case during a road rage incident in Wausau.

It happened on Tuesday along the Highway 29 expressway.

Police said an 49-year-old Appleton man was driving into town from the west, when his SUV passed a van – and the van started ramming the SUV from behind. The Appleton man called 911, and a dispatcher told him to wait in a parking lot for an officer.

In the meantime, the attackers followed the man – and police said the couple got out and started beating him and stabbing him with their vehicle keys. The man pulled his concealed gun, and the two backed off.

A 30-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman from Michigan were arrested on possible charges of battery and disorderly conduct.

The SUV driver had a legal state concealed carry permit, and police say he will not be criminally charged.
