Road Rage Results In Serious Charges

Andrew Dunn, a 47 year old Silver Spring, MD resident, was arrested by the United States Park Police and charged with “Assault with Intent to Commit Murder.”

This arrest stems from a road rage incident on Sunday November 7, 2010.

Andrew Dunn and another driver were on Powder Mill Road near the Baltimore Washington Parkway on November 7 at about 4:30 pm when they exchanged words after the victim was reportedly almost run off the road.

After that, both drivers drove away with the eventual victim, following Dunn and talking with the police dispatcher, describing what happened. A short time later, both drivers came to a stop, and Dunn fired a handgun at the victim.

The gunfire did not strike the victim or his car.

The victim was able to provide US Park Police Detectives with identifying information and a description. The Detectives tracked the suspect with this information.

On Tuesday November 9, 2010, United States Park Police Detectives and SWAT Team executed a search warrant at Dunn’s home in the Briggs Chaney area of Silver Spring and recovered evidence linking him to the crime.

Dunn was arrested and charged in United States District Court for the Southern District of Maryland.

Dunn is being held pending further court proceedings.
