State Trooper Charged With Pointing Gun At Motorist In Road Rage Incident

Police: Off-duty trooper charged in road-rage incident

MILFORD MILL, Md. (AP) – Authorities say an off-duty Maryland state trooper has been charged after pulling a gun during a road-rage incident on Baltimore’s beltway.

Baltimore County police said in a statement Monday that after a man changed lanes Sunday evening, a man in a Volkswagen Jetta pointed a handgun at him and his passenger.

Twenty-eight-year-old trooper Zachary Bowen of Reisterstown was later identified as the suspect and charged with two counts of first- and second-degree assault as well as a firearms offense.

Maryland State Police say Bowen has been suspended without pay. They say Bowen has been on the force since 2012.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Bowen who could comment on the charges.
