Police said around 3 p.m., a woman in an orange Volkswagen was in the area of U.S. Highway 40 and Joppa Farm Road when she swerved to avoid a pothole and cut Salsbery off. Salsbery then pulled up next to the Volkswagen and pointed a handgun at the woman and her passenger.

After the driver called 911, troopers stopped Salsbery in a white Chevrolet Equinox on U.S. Route 40 and Edgewood Road. They reportedly found a Ruger .380 handgun in the vehicle.

Salsbery was arrested at the scene. Police later executed a search warrant at Salsbery’s home and seized ten more guns, officials said.

    If the Government would maintain the roads properly, this would not have happened.

    Consider toxoplasma aka “The Road Rage Parasite”, the other pandemic. In other words, a lot of insanity we see in our world is a protozoa which infects the brain and controls the host making them think everything is a cage-match, losing empathy, and I’ve come to understand that’s related to a lack of GABA, the inhibitory neurotransmitter. So if we think of toxo as eating GABA, that can’t be too far off. It at least disrupts it in some way.
