It happened on the 4000 block of Knorr Street. Police say 45-year-old Kenneth Butterworth of Friendship, cut off a 47-year-old man while the two were driving. 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.
