    More information has been revealed about a man who police say pulled out a crossbow in a fit of road rage.

    On Tuesday, police say Kenneth Butterworth, 45, of Friendship, was driving on the 4000 block of Knorr Street when he cut off a 47-year-old driver. The elder man then cut off Butterworth and beeped his horn in retaliation, according to investigators. Butterworth then allegedly pulled out a crossbow and pointed it at the other driver. The 47-year-old called 911 and Butterworth was arrested.

    Butterworth never fired the bow and no one was injured, according to investigators. He is charged with assault for pointing a deadly weapon, according to police.

    On Wednesday, police released Butterworth’s picture.
