A Thomson woman has been charged with methamphetamine possession after law enforcement stopped her for allegedly pointing a gun at a motorist in an alleged road rage incident Aug. 7.
Two McDuffie County Sheriff’s Office investigators, a Thomson Police and a Georgia State Patrol Trooper stopped a Ford Bronco XLT at Main Street and Milledge Street around 1:30 p.m. The two occupants were ordered out of the vehicle and handcuffed while the Bronco was searched. The gun and ammunition were found inside the vehicle as well as a substance that appeared to be methamphetamine. The drug charge was issued after an initial charge of disorderly conduct.
Christine Ann Hall, 54, of the 2550 block of Shadow Ridge Drive, was taken into custody and transported to the McDuffie County Jail. After an investigation, she was charged with methamphetamine possession.
According to officers on the scene, McDuffie 911 received a complaint about a road rage incident involving a white Ford Bronco. The complainant told dispatch that the driver of a white Ford Bronco pointed a gun at him at the red light at the intersection of Cobbham Road and the Thomson Bypass. The complainant described the vehicle and it was spotted and stopped by a McDuffie County Sheriff’s Office Investigator in downtown Thomson.
“The person complained that the driver pulled a firearm on him,” said Thomson Police Sgt. Brian Addenbrook. “We stopped the vehicle and located the firearm in the vehicle,” he said.
Hall was released from the McDuffie County Jail on Aug. 9 after posting a $3,000 bond.
