Rosenberg police say they've arrested a man in a case of road rage, but he says it didn't happen quite the way witnesses reported. On Thursday, March 11, officers arrested Theodore Baines, 49 of Rosenberg, for aggravated assault and unlawful carry of a fire arm after a road rage incident.

Police received a call that a man waved a handgun at motorists while driving along Highway 59 northbound and exited at FM 2218. An officer spotted the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop at a nearby gas station. Police say officers located two open bottles of alcohol and two loaded firearms in Baines' brown Ford F-150.

Police say Baines told officers that he did not wave a firearm but waved his hand (while thumb and fore finger were in an L shape) as to say don't do that, after having been cut-off by another motorist.

Baines was arrested without incident. He's charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and unlawful carry of a firearm.

Baines was arrested and taken to the Rosenberg City Jail and was later transferred to the Fort Bend County Jail.
