Road rage blamed in Frederick confrontation



FREDERICK, Md. - A road-rage incident is being blamed for a Sunday afternoon confrontation between two motorists on southbound Md. 85 at Spectrum Road, Maryland State Police in Frederick said.

As a result, Jeffrey Lee Kinley, 22, of Frederick, was charged with first- and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment in the 3 p.m. incident, police said.

Kinley was released on a personal recognizance bond, officials said.

Troopers from the Frederick barrack were dispatched to a report of a two-vehicle collision and discovered the collision was due to road rage.

Kinley allegedly drove in front of a vehicle driven by Joshua Thomas, 23, also of Frederick, and intentionally slammed on the brakes, causing a collision with the rear of Kinley's vehicle.

Police said Kinley got out of his vehicle and grabbed a knife, threatening Thomas. Troopers located the knife and Kinley admitted that he grabbed the knife and threatened Thomas due to an ongoing feud between the two men.

A search turned up two other knives in Kinley's vehicle, police said. No injuries were reported, police said.
