Man Pulls Gun in Road Rage Incident Ends Up Shooting Himself

 A man was driving on Buchanan Highway in Paulding County, Georgia around 7:45 in the morning.  Traffic was backedup due to a lumber truck trying to make a delivery. Two men were wearing reflective vests and directing traffic. Deputies stated that the road rage suspect was "clearly impatient and annoyed by the delay." The man got out of his car, pulled out a handgun and started threatening the workers.  

Eventually the angry man returned to his vehicle. While trying to re-holster his gun he unintentionally shot himself in the hand. No one else was injured. 

He was taken to the hospital for treatment. Deputies stated that they are reviewing the incident and will determine whether to charge the man after he is released from the hospital.
