Police: Driver points gun in New Hampshire road-rage incident

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Police in Manchester, New Hampshire, say a driver is accused of pointing a handgun at another driver’s chest in a road-rage incident.

Police say 21-year-old Joshua Lufbery, of Candia, made a vulgar hand gesture Monday when the driver behind him honked as a light turned green. The driver later stopped next to him and both exchanged words.

The driver, 56-year-old Raymond Desrochers, of Manchester, got out and allegedly threw something at Lufbery’s rear window, breaking it. Police said Lufbery got out and punched Desrochers’ truck before following him as his passenger called 911.

Desrochers got out and allegedly pointed the gun before leaving.


Desrochers was arrested on criminal threatening and criminal mischief charges. He was released on $5,000 bond. It wasn’t known if he had a lawyer; listed numbers weren’t in service.
