Hangry Road Rage Suspect Arrested In Drive-Through
Deputies from Constable Ted Heap's Office arrested a road rage suspect in a fast food drive-through lane in Northwest Houston.
On the morning of January 20, the victim called Precinct 5 to report a man was tailgating him and waving a gun in his direction. The man who was being aggressively followed pulled into a large parking lot and noticed the suspect drove past him and steered into a fast food restaurant at Eldridge and West Little York.
Deputies arrived on the scene, found the suspect still waiting for his order, and pulled him over. Inside the suspect's vehicle was a loaded handgun.
Hunter Christian Lowrey, 32, who has a criminal history of road rage, was arrested on felony charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Constable Heap offers these tips if you are involved in a road rage incident:
• If you encounter an aggressive driver, don’t respond.
• Don’t respond to aggression with aggression.
• Avoid eye contact.
• Avoid offensive hand gestures.
• Don’t honk your horn or attempt to antagonize the enraged driver by blocking his way.
• If you’re being followed or if an enraged driver points a gun at you, call 911 and provide a detailed description of the vehicle, its license plate and the driver. #constabletedheap #yourconstable
