Waterloo man accused of pulling gun in road rage case
WATERLOO (AP) -
A Waterloo man accused of pulling out a handgun during a road rage incident in September faces a federal firearms charge.
Court documents unsealed Monday show 34-year-old Jeramia William Cook was indicted Nov. 19 on a single count of possession of a firearm and ammunition as a felon. He was arrested on state charges in September.
Police say Cook became angry with the driver of a semi trailer on Sept. 3. Cook is accused of denting the semi trailer with a bottle and then pulling out a handgun.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (http://bit.ly/1bhAacx ) Cook is barred from handling weapons because of a 1999 burglary conviction.
A message left for Cook's attorney was not immediately returned Wednesday.
