OGALLALA, Neb. (COLLEN) – A Missouri truck driver was arrested after a “road rage incident” on I-80 near Ogallala on Saturday. The NSP said a truck driver apparently frustrated by slow traffic during the winter storm threatened another driver with a knife.

Around 5:00 PM MT, Nebraska State Patrol troopers said they were conducting traffic enforcement at the Interstate 80 interchange in Ogallala when a vehicle pulled up to a trooper and reported the driver threatened him with a knife.

According to NSP, the victim said a driver got out of the truck in the middle of the night, approached the victim’s vehicle and threatened the driver with a knife.

Troopers investigated the incident and identified Barry Bynum, 67, of St. Clair, Missouri, as the driver of the semi.

NSP said Bynum was arrested and booked into the Keith County Jail for making terroristic threats, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony and third-degree assault.
