(LEXINGTON PARK, MD) – Maryland State Police have cited a man with multiple traffic violations in connection with a reported road rage incident last month in St. Mary’s County.

According to a preliminary investigation, at about 2:25 p.m. on April 23, Tyler, who was driving a Hyundai Sonata on Great Mills Road in Lexington Park, Maryland, pulled alongside a fire engine from the Bay District Volunteer Fire Department and started yelling at the fire crew for an unknown reason.
