Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol arrested a Missouri man following a road rage incident Saturday evening during the strong winter storm in western Nebraska.

At approximately 5:00 p.m. MT, as troopers were performing traffic control at the Interstate 80 interchange at Ogallala, a vehicle stopped near a trooper and reported that another driver had made a threat while traffic was slowly exiting I-80 due to the weather conditions. The victim reported that a semi driver had exited his truck, approached the victim’s vehicle, and threatened the victim with a knife.

Troopers investigated the incident and located the semi driver, identified as Barry Bynum, 67, of St. Clair, Missouri. Bynum was arrested for marking terroristic threats, possession of a deadly weapon while committing a felony, and third-degree assault. He was lodged in Keith County Jail.
