Police charge man over violent Bruce Hwy road rage

A MAN in his 20s has been charged after he was allegedly involved in a road rage incident in Deception Bay last month.

About 2.30pm on January 23, a 2017 Ford Ranger was observed doing "doughnuts" in the Caboolture area.

After a man confronted the driver about his dangerous behaviour, it's alleged he followed that man's vehicle onto the Bruce Highway. He then allegedly discharged a firearm out of the vehicle's window into the sky.
