Police charge man over violent Bruce Hwy road rage
A MAN in his 20s has been charged after he was allegedly involved in a road rage incident in Deception Bay last month.
About 2.30pm on January 23, a 2017 Ford Ranger was observed doing "doughnuts" in the Caboolture area.
After a man confronted the driver about his dangerous behaviour, it's alleged he followed that man's vehicle onto the Bruce Highway. He then allegedly discharged a firearm out of the vehicle's window into the sky.
It then left the highway via the Deception Bay off ramp.
About 8pm, the Ranger was sighted on the side of Twin View Rd at Elimbah.
After a short, authorised pursuit through Elimbah, Bracalba and D'Aguilar, the vehicle was stopped by a tyre deflation device.
Two men got out of the car and fled on foot but were located shortly after at a rural property on Keliher Rd.
The Ranger was secured and following a search, a sawn-off single barrel shotgun was located inside.
It is alleged the vehicle had been stolen on January 14 from a home in Albany Creek.
