A 23-year-old Incline Village man was arrested on suspicion of assault and destruction of property following a road-rage incident that took place on Mount Rose Highway, according to Nevada Highway Patrol.

Investigators say that Yonatan Zuniga Sanchez was driving a gold Ford pickup Tuesday afternoon when he fired a handgun at another vehicle, shattering a window.

The gun located in his truck was said to resemble a 9 mm Beretta handgun and was missing the orange tip to distinguish it from an actual firearm.

Zuniga Sanchez was booked into Washoe County jail on Tuesday and is being held without bail.
