Green Lake Man Arrested Following Road Rage Pistol-Whipping

(Berlin) A Green Lake man was arrested Wednesday after assaulting another motorist with a gun during a road rage incident. Officers responded to the intersection of Mound and Franklin streets in the city of Berlin around 8:45am. The 64-year-old was involved in a physical altercation with the other driver when he pulled a nine-millimeter pistol from his pocket and made threats. As the motorist was retreating to his car, he was struck in the back of the head with the pistol. The suspect was taken into custody without incident and taken to the Green Lake County Jail where he is awaiting an initial appearance. Berlin Police Chief Dennis Plantz called the situation unfortunate saying it “should serve as a stern reminder that these types of incidents…can have unimaginable consequences.”
