A Roosevelt man was arrested Monday after he was involved in a road rage incident on the Southern State Parkway, according to New York State Police.
While driving near the Newbridge Road exit, Leonardo Argueta, 45, allegedly attempted to force a Nissan Altima off the roadway with his Ford pick-up truck. Police said he also threw a bottle at the Altima before both vehicles pulled over on the shoulder.
Argueta allegedly got out of his car and approached the Altima's driver in a threatening manner when witnesses of the incident stopped to help, police said. A short time later, troopers arrived and placed Arguetta under arrest.
Argueta was charged with second-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree harassment and reckless driving. He is due back at First District Court in Hempstead on Sept. 26.
The arrest information was supplied by the New York State Police. It does not indicate a conviction.
