PD: Road-rage suspect crashes motorcycle; Police find money strewn on road
Police found a man reportedly involved in a road-rage incident Saturday night a short distance away with a crashed motorcycle and money all over the road, officials said.
Officers were sent to the 10 block of North Second Street for reports of a man with a gun that may have been involved in a disturbance, according to a release.
A 61-year-old woman told officers she saw a road-rage incident with a silver SUV and a yellow Kawasaki motorcycle, officials said.
The woman saw a verbal argument between the two vehicles, and then a firearm was pulled from the holster of a 41-year-old man, later identified as Louis E. Zampos, according to the release.
Zampos left the scene, but after officers got a description of the motorcycle, they found him a short distance away on Winnebago Street just after 8 p.m., police said.
The officer that found Zampos determined he had crashed his motorcycle and there was money strewn across the roadway, according to the release. Zampos suffered non-life-threatening injuries, and admitted to police that he was involved in the earlier disturbance on Second Street.
Zampos said he didn’t pull out his gun, but he did tell the SUV driver that he was armed with a .380 handgun, police said. He told police the argument started over each driver thinking the other should have been driving in a different fashion.
Zampos was cited for disorderly conduct while armed.
