DILLSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Police have charged a York County man with aggravated assault and other crimes following a road rage incident in Franklin Township.

William Gore, 62, of Dillsburg, is accused of pointing a small handgun at the head of a 23-year-old man in the parking lot of the South Mountain Elementary School on Sunday afternoon, according to Northern York County Regional police.

The victim reported that he and his girlfriend were following a car that eventually stopped in the middle of a Carroll Township roadway. Believing the car had broken down, he went around the car and soon noticed it tailgating them through Dillsburg, he told police.

The victim pulled into the school parking lot and argued with Gore, who then pulled the handgun and put it against the man's temple, police said.

The man pushed the gun and was punched in the face by Gore, who then got into his 1979 Rolls Royce and drove directly at the victim as he was trying to get into his own car, according to police.

Gore was taken into custody and a loaded .380 caliber handgun was found in his car, police said.

In addition to aggravated assault, he was charged with simple assault, reckless endangerment, terroristic threats, possession of a weapon on school property, and harassment.
