By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska The Alaska State Troopers responded to a report of road rage on the Parks highway between Nenana and Fairbanks Saturday.

According to charging documents Even Gentry, 24, of Fairbanks and his girlfriend, Emilie Anderson, left a restaurant in Nenana and were driving back to Fairbanks when the incident happened. Gentry was on a motorcycle and Anderson was driving a black GMC truck.

The victim allegedly passed their vehicles and according to Gentry almost hit Anderson's truck which had their kids in it. Gentry became angry and attempted to get the victim to pull over by waving his gun at them and breaking in front of them and at times driving at speeds over 90 mph.

Anderson stated that she thought Gentry was the one who was almost hit by the victim’s truck as it passed them. She denied seeing him pull a gun but could see him gesturing at the driver to get him to pull over.

The victim’s wife was able to video some of the incident. The video shows Anderson using her truck to attempt to side swipe the victims truck, forcing it into oncoming traffic. All of this occurred while children were riding within Anderson’s vehicle.

Gentry was arrested on two counts of third degree assault, reckless driving and road rage. Charges on Anderson will be forwarded to the district attorney for review.

Troopers are asking anyone with witnessed the incident or had to take action to avoid a collision to call Trooper Bozman at 451-5100.
