WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) -- Police say a man who accused two people in a road rage incident in Wausau held them at gunpoint until officers arrived.

A 49-year-old Appleton man called 911 from Highway 29 Tuesday afternoon saying the van he had just passed was ramming his SUV from behind. The dispatcher told the caller to pull off the road and wait for officers.

The SUV driver says the van followed and the couple inside began hitting him and stabbing him with car keys. The driver then pulled out his gun and pointed it at the two until police arrived.

The Wausau Daily Herald says the couple was booked on possible charges of battery and disorderly conduct. Authorities say the SUV driver has a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
