A road rage incident has landed an eastern Iowa cop in legal trouble. A DeWitt police officer is on paid suspension while her department investigates a road rage incident that netted her an aggravated assault charge.
It happened in north Davenport. A Moline, Illinois, motorist called 9-1-1 and said another driver had displayed a gun. Sheriff’s deputies later stopped Tammi Jo Gordy. Gordy told Davenport cops the man pulled out in front of her. She says a passenger in his car then flipped her off when she passed him.
Both drivers stopped in a parking lot. Gordy said she displayed the butt of her holstered gun and some pepper spray when the man approached her in a threatening manner. She’s due in court March 3rd.
