A man was arrested by Westchester County Police on Thursday night after he menaced two people in an adjacent vehicle with a handgun on the Cross County Parkway in Yonkers.
Westchester County Police received a 911 call at 6:43 p.m. from a motorist who reported that a man in another car had followed his car aggressively on the westbound Cross County Parkway and then cut in front of him near the Bronx River Parkway entrance ramp, according to Kieran O'Leary, public information officer for Westchester County Police. The caller further reported that the other driver pointed a handgun at him and his passenger before leaving the scene, O'Leary said.
The caller provided detailed information to county police, including the license plate number and description of the other vehicle. Minutes later, police officer James Rosselli located the suspect vehicle on the westbound Cross County Parkway near North Columbus Avenue. He stopped the vehicle and took the driver into custody.
Michael B. Williams, 48, was charged with menacing in the second degree, a misdemeanor. He was booked at county police headquarters and released pending a future appearance in Mount Vernon City Court.
