Man allegedly brandishes handgun in road rage incident


A man was apprehended by a pair of Arkansas Game and Fish Commission wardens at midday Friday after he was allegedly observed brandishing a handgun from his vehicle after getting into a verbal altercation with another driver at a three-way intersection at The Pines mall.

Detective Steven Rucker said in a probable-cause affidavit that Stanley Drew Holland, 23, arrived at the intersection at the same time as another driver and that each driver tried to claim the right of way. Rucker said the wardens saw Holland produce a handgun, causing the other driver to flee the scene.

Rucker said in the affidavit that game officer Randy Rhodes immediately apprehended Holland and held him until the arrival of PBPD officers.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $25,000 bond for Holland after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with aggravated assault.

Kearney also ordered Holland to have no contact with the other driver until the case is settled.

Holland said he would hire his own attorney and was told to return to court Aug. 12.
