A Concord woman faces numerous charges after an alleged road rage incident in Manchester on April 7.
Jessica McGratty, 25, was arrested and charged with reckless conduct, three counts of criminal threatening, all felonies, and conduct after an accident.
According to Lt. Maureen Tessier, the public information officer for the Manchester Police Department, at a little before 1 a.m. on the morning in question, officers were called to South Willow Street for a report of a road rage incident.
The officers met with the reporting party who alleged that a woman driving a Mazda had fired a gun in the air and pointed it at their Subaru.
It all started after the two cars collided on South Willow Street. After the collision, the Mazda fled the scene and the reporting party began following the Mazda.
Near the area of Cilley Road and Fremont Street, the Mazda allegedly slowed and the woman “(pointed) a handgun out the driver’s window, firing a shot into the air.” Later, the woman, identified as McGratty, allegedly pointed the gun at the three people in the Subaru who ducked for cover “in fear they would be shot.”
McGratty allegedly then left the scene and the Subaru followed at a safer distance while reporting the incident to police.
The police reportedly caught up with McGratty near the Mall of New Hampshire where she was stopped and arrested.
“She was found in possession of a .38 caliber revolver with one spent casing and 4 bullets in the five shot chamber,” Tessier alleged.
