What reportedly began as a road rage incident in Marion County ended with two people arrested in Alachua County Monday afternoon.  According to preliminary reports, a caller contacted the Florida Highway Patrol regarding a road rage incident on northbound Interstate 75 in which either the driver or occupant of a late-model Toyota brandished a firearm.  The caller described the automobile in question as a black car with the words “Just Married” on the bumper.  By the time that vehicle reached the Alachua exit, more than a dozen Alachua County Sheriff’s Office (ACSO) deputies were in pursuit.  With weapons drawn, deputies ordered the driver and passenger, a man and woman, out of the Toyota.  Deputies on the scene say that did indeed recover a handgun from the car.  Meanwhile, both occupants were arrested over the incident, although it is unclear as to whether or not either was charged.
