A Canton man has been charged with inducing panic after a road rage incident at the Marathon gas station parking lot in the 4400 block of Portage Street.
Jackson Township Police Chief Dave Zink says Shawn T. Poole of Alan Page Drive SE told police another motorist almost hit his vehicle when pulling into the lot.
"At that point he (Poole) brandished a firearm, a Glock .40 caliber," says Zink who explains that Poole had a concealed carry permit but didn't handle the firearm properly even though he never pointed it at anyone.
The two drivers began arguing and the gas station attendant called police. After more verbal sparring Poole is accused of again showing the gun.
Additional charges are under review through the Massillon Prosecutor's Office.
