WASILLA - A 19-year-old driver has been arrested in what Alaska State Troopers are calling a "road rage" incident on the Parks Highway.

John D. Wilson II of Palmer was charged Saturday with third-degree assault.

Troopers were called early Friday night to the Parks Highway near Seward Meridian Parkway.

Troopers say Wilson ran another motorist off the road at a high rate of speed and fled. Neither vehicle was damaged.

Wilson was arrested Saturday night at a business on Big Lake Road. Troopers say he also had an outstanding warrant for theft.

He was booked at Mat-Su Pretrial Facility with bail set at $7,600.
