Off-duty State Trooper Charged in Road-Rage Incident

MILFORD MILL (ANN) — An off-duty Maryland state trooper has been charged after pulling a gun during a road-rage incident on Baltimore’s beltway, officials said.

Baltimore County police said in a statement Monday that they were called to Interstate 695 near the Liberty Road exit for an assault. Police said that after a man changed lanes Sunday evening, another man in a Volkswagen Jetta pointed a handgun at him and his passenger.

Trooper Zachary Tyler Bowen, 28, of Reisterstown, was later identified as the suspect and charged with two counts of first- and second-degree assault as well as a firearms offense.

Maryland State Police said Bowen has been suspended without pay. Bowen has been on the force since 2012, state police said.
