A Dahlonega man was arrested and charged with criminal trespass and terroristic threats following a road rage incident earlier this month.


According to Dawson County Sheriff-Elect Jeff Johnson, the sheriff's office received an aggressive driving complaint Sept. 6 from a driver on Ga. 400.


The driver said he was traveling southbound on Ga. 400 when he tried to enter the left hand lane, the accused aggressive driver would speed up to prevent him from changing lanes.


The accused driver, Marcos Antonio Torres, 41, followed the caller to a location on Grant Road, Johnson said.


During the ensuing verbal exchange, Torres was accused of making verbal threats to kill the other driver.


In addition, Torres is charged with failing to exit the property after being ordered to leave.
Johnson said the driver admitted he may have unintentionally cut Torres off during a lane change.


Torres was released after posting bail.
