SANBORNTON - A Massachusetts man was arrested this morning for allegedly pointing a handgun with laser sight at another motorist on I-93 in what New Hampshire State Police is describing as a road rage incident.
According to Troop D, about 8:07 a.m. they received a report from a motorist that the driver of another vehicle had pointed a handgun equipped with a laser at him as the two vehicles drove in close proximity.
A short time later at Exit 23, New Hampton police stopped a vehicle driven by John Spyros Priovolos, 48, of Medfield, Mass. Priovolos didn't have a valid driver's license, but he did have in his possession a handgun with grip-activated laser sight, according to police.
Priovolos was arrested and charged with driving without a valid license and criminal threatening. He will be arraigned in the circuit courts in Laconia and Franklin, respectively, and was released on personal recognizance bond.
