A video showing a pickup truck driver pointing a gun at the head of a biker during wild Nevada road rage incident has gone viral this week. The video, which you can watch above, was posted to Youtube by “Submiminal Moto.”
The biker, who has kept his identity secret, gave the video to the Henderson, Nevada, police, who are investigating. No arrests had been made as of Tuesday.
The video shows a group of bikers riding together. As they pull up to a red pickup truck, the driver puts his middle finger out toward them. The biker recording the ride on a helmet camera pulls up next to the truck, which has Texas license plates, and they exchange words, with the biker saying, “what did I do?”
The biker then pulls up to the side of the truck at a red light and knocks on the window. When the passenger sees him, he gets the attention of the driver, who pulls a gun from his center console and points it at the biker. The driver and the passenger begin screaming obscenities at him and telling him to get away from the truck.
The passenger then says, “You’re all about to get f**cking shot.”
The biker said on his Youtube post that he admits he was wrong for going up to the window, but said he has been cleared by the police of any wrongdoing.
“I didn’t even realize the guy had his finger on the trigger until I went back and reviewed the video myself. My heart was just racing, my stomach turned and I was feeling sick. It was definitely scary,” the rider told KVVU.
“I didn’t really think it was gonna escalate to what it did, and that’s literally the first time I’ve gone up to somebody’s window in traffic like that and it will be the last,” he said.
The man who said he is the driver in the video called the news station and said the video doesn’t show everything that led up to the incident. He said he felt threatened by the bikers who had been driving aggressively before the incident seen on the video. He told KVVU he has a concealed carry permit and went to the police station to file a report.
Henderson police have not said if they are planning to make any arrests.
