Northern Colorado road rage got intense earlier this month when a 30-year-old man was arrested after allegedly threatening another driver with a cow's jawbone.

The Kersey Police were called to U.S. 34 and Weld County Road 49 around 5:45 p.m  on April 4 after a report of road rage. The Greeley Tribune is reporting that the incident began back on Colo. 329 near Weld 49 when a driver in a Chevrolet Cruze cut off 30-year-old Ross Burke. Both cars came to a stop at an intersection and Burke began to yell at the driver in the Chevy.

The driver of the Chevy flipped off Burke before driving off. While continuing down Weld 49, Burke got behind the driver in the Chevy. That's when the Chevy driver slammed his brakes in front of Burke right as he tried to pass.

When the pair came to a stop again at a traffic light, Burke allegedly grabbed a cow's jawbone out of his Jeep and approached the Chevy driver, where he was met with a pistol in the chest. The driver told Burke to get back and began to get out of his car. However, he failed to put the car in park and it rolled forward into a Dodge truck stopped at the light. The driver claims the accident startled him and his gun accidentally "went off."

The bullet was found stuck in the door frame of the Chevy Cruze.

Burke was booked for reckless driving and felony menacing then released.
