YPSILANTI, MI – An alleged road rage incident involving a passing driver on I-94 and showing off a gun on Wednesday night was ruled unfounded, police said.
Officers were called in to help Michigan State Police investigate the apparent road rage incident which began around 9:40 p.m. Wednesday, November 4 on I-94 and ended in Ypsilanti , according to the Ypsilanti Police Department.
A woman reported to police that she was being aggressively followed on I-94 by another driver who continued to follow her off the freeway towards Ypsilanti, police said.
When the two men reached S. Huron and Spring Streets, the driver behind the woman allegedly raised a gun and fled, police said.

No arrests have been made and the case is considered closed for the time being.
