Driver pulls gun on what he thought was drunk driver
- Updated: April 28, 2012
When Artur Slepecki’s vehicle was struck by another driver on Route 104 near Lakeside Road in the Town of Ontario on Thursday (3/22) just before 4 p.m., he thought the erratic driver was drunk. The driver had struck another vehicle before hitting Slepecki and eventually ended up in a ditch.
The other driver exited his vehicle to find an angry Slepecki approaching with a 380 pistol pointed at him. The 911 center began to receive a slurry of calls reporting a man waving a pistol on Route 104. The erratic driver jumped back in his vehicle and sped away, immediately stopping after police pulled behind him.
What Slepecki did not realize was that the erratic driver was having a diabetic reaction at the time of the driving incident. Slepecki received a broken ankle in the accident and according to police there was significant damage to his vehicle.
On Wednesday (4/25) Slepecki, age 52, of Pineview Drive in Macedon was arrested for Menacing in the 2nd Degree. He told police he thought he was in danger from what he thought was a drunk driver. Slepecki was issued an appearance ticket for Ontario Town Court for may 1st. “This was another road rage incident. I am seeing him (Slepecki) losing his permit,” said Wayne County District Attorney Rick Healy.
