    A Rhode Island police officer charged in connection with a road rage incident last month has pleaded not guilty.

    Warwick Officer David Boardman pleaded not guilty Monday to vandalism and disorderly conduct and was released on $2,000 bond, according to the Providence Journal.

    Authorities say at about 1 a.m. on July 14, while stopped at a red light, the 27-year-old Cranston resident got out of his vehicle and used his hands to break the glass on the passenger side of another vehicle.

    The other driver says Boardman had been tailgating, using his high beans and beeping at him.
