Rush Hour Road Rage Incident Goes On For 13 Miles

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ A Stratford man is set to face a state judge on allegations he threatened a fellow driver with a knife during a road rage incident that spanned 13 miles on the Merritt Parkway.

Thirty-year-old Clifford Fardo is scheduled to be arraigned on reckless endangerment and threatening charges today in Bridgeport Superior Court.

State police told the Connecticut Post that the encounter between Fardo and the other driver began on the parkway in Fairfield during Friday morning’s rush hour and ended near the Main Avenue exit in Norwalk.

Troopers say Fardo threatened the other driver by holding a knife out his car window and tried to run the other driver off the road several times.

A message seeking comment was left at a phone listing for Fardo this morning.
