Police in Manchester, New Hampshire, have arrested a man accused of smashing a vehicle window with an object and pointing a gun at another driver in an alleged road rage incident.

The incident happened on Huse Road around 5 p.m. Monday.

Police say Raymond Desrochers, 56, of Manchester, was stopped behind Joshua Lufbery, 21, at a stop light, and used his horn when the light turned green.

Lufbery allegedly made an obscene hand gesture.

Desrochers pulled up next to Lufbery on Candia Road and began yelling at Lufbery and his passenger. Desrochers then allegedly threw an object at the back window, shattering it.

Lufbery then tried to stop Desrochers, who drove away. Lufbery followed Desrochers to an unknown street and went up to Desrochers' driver's side window. 

Desrochers then allegedly pulled out a gun, at which point Lufbery called police. 

Desrochers was arrested a short time later at his home. He was charged with criminal threatening and criminal mischief. 

He was released on $5,000 bail and is set to appear in court on Aug. 16.
