    Cops: Man Wielded Knife, Stun Gun in Road Rage Incident
    Quincy Police

    A Quincy, Massachusetts, man is facing criminal threatening charges after he allegedly pulled out a knife and stun gun in a road rage incident.

    Officers responded Tuesday night at 7:52 to Sea Street for a report of a road rage incident.

    The caller told police he was traveling on Merrymount Parkway when another vehicle came around the corner at a high rate of speed and almost hit him. The victim’s kids were in his car at the time.

    He continued home and noticed the car was following him closely. The victim parked in front of his home and the other driver, later identified as John Carter, also exited his vehicle and began to argue with him.

    Police said during the argument the victim noticed Carter had a knife in his hands. Carter also produced a stun gun and activated it, creating an arc of electricity.

    The victim immediately called police at which point Carter left the area. The victim then followed Carter at a distance to his home on Manet Avenue.

    Police questioned Carter, who told them he got into an argument with the victim, but denied ever pulling out weapons. During questioning, Carter eventually told police he had a knife in his pocket and stun gun in his car.

    Police arrested Carter for assault by means of a dangerous weapon and possession of an electric stun gun. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Quincy District Court Wednesday.
