Willoughby Road Rage Incident Leads To Two Arrests

Willoughby - Police arrested two people for their involvement in a road rage incident that resulted in a shot being fired Wednesday morning.

According to police, the incident started on Lost Nation Road above state Route 2. A Chevy Cruze was traveling northbound in the left lane when it passed a Chevrolet pick-up truck and cut in front of the truck, allegedly nearly causing a crash. When the Cruze started to make a right turn into the Oakhill Apartment complex, it briefly stopped and the truck pulled around to the Cruze's driver side. The occupants of the two vehicles started to argue and a passenger inside the truck threw a plastic water bottle through an open window, striking the driver of the Cruze. 

Police say the driver of the Cruze, identified as 39-year-old Zoe Anderson, brandished a gun from her purse and fired one round into the air in front of the truck's passenger, causing the driver of the truck to back away. Anderson pulled into the apartment complex and drove several hundred feet down the road before she allegedly stopped, exited the car and pointed her gun at the truck. 

Police later found Anderson in the apartment complex and took her into custody. Anderson is charged with discharging a firearm within the city and aggravated menacing.

The truck's passenger, identified as Louis Paroska, is charged with assault and disorderly conduct.
