BOSTON (CBS) – Brandon Pease says the road rage he encountered with his girlfriend was like something you see in the movies. “It was a ‘pow’ and we heard a thud and we realized he just hit the car,” Pease said.

Police say 27-year-old Steven Perez, of Marlborough, pointed a gun at Brandon and his girlfriend while driving erratically down Route 495 in Littleton.

Brandon says he first spotted Perez weaving in and out of traffic. That’s when his girlfriend snapped cell phone pictures of his car and called 911.

“He then pulled a weapon at us to warn us he had a gun. He rolled the window down and pull the gun out and shot at our passenger side of our car,” Pease said.

“For someone to pull out a weapon and hit a car there was definitely a lot of anger behind him,” said Brandon who is thankful no one was injured in this road rage incident.

“It’s very good to take someone like that off the streets, who knows what he could’ve done.”

Police didn’t say what led to the road rage. Perez is being held without bail. He is due back in court on Wednesday.
