A Waynesboro, Pa., man charged in connection with a weekend road-rage incident remained held on bond Tuesday after a hearing before a Washington County judge.

Tony Lee Frye Jr., 19, of 8586 Capitol Hill Road, is charged with three counts each of first- and second-degree assault, three counts of reckless endangerment, two handgun possession counts and removing a weapon's serial number.

Washington County District Judge Ralph H. France kept Frye's bail at $75,000 Wednesday. Frye is being held at the Washington County Detention Center.

Assistant Washington County State's Attorney Viki Pauler said after the hearing that Frye did not appear to have any prior convictions.

According to charging documents, Frye was driving south on Interstate 81 when he allegedly pointed a handgun at a car carrying three people.

At about 7:30 p.m., Maryland State Police received a phone call from one of the people inside the car. The caller said someone pointed a gun at them and told police where to find the assailant, according to court papers.

Police stopped Frye after he turned in to Prime Outlets. Police recovered a .22-caliber pistol loaded with seven live rounds. The serial number had been filed off the gun, police said.
