State police arrested an 18-year-old after he allegedly pointed a BB gun at another motorist during a road-rage incident.

Nicholas V. Hollifield, of East Islip, was arrested around 1 p.m., Thursday, April 18, after troopers responded to investigate a complaint of road rage and a menacing on the Southern State Parkway westbound, west of Exit 32 in the Town of Oyster Bay, said Trooper Daniel Ahlgrim.

According to Ahlgrim, an investigation into the incident revealed that Hollifield, while driving a blue 2016 Chrysler 200, pointed a black BB gun at another motorist, after allegedly being tailgated. 

He was located on Carlisle Road, in Wantagh, by the Nassau County Police who placed him under arrest.
