Road Rage Lands One in JailAbout 4:50pm, on Monday, February 19, 2007, officers from District B-2 observed two drivers, stopped side by side at intersection of Dudley Street and Shawmut Avenue, engaged in what appeared to be a verbal dispute. Upon seeing the marked cruiser, one of the drivers motioned for the officers to get involved. According to driver #1 (the victim), driver #2 (the suspect) was blocking traffic, so, driver #1 beeped his horn. According to driver #1, when he beeped his horn, driver #2 immediately jumped out of his car and then proceeded to reach into his pants as if he was reaching for a weapon. At this point, driver #1 says he drove off, but driver #2 followed him. Officers then spoke to driver #2 who stated that he was only asking driver #1 for directions. At this point, officers asked driver #2 to produce his license, however, driver #2 refused to even acknowledge the officers. Finally, a check thru the Mobile Data Terminal (the computer inside the cruiser) revealed that driver #2 was unlicensed. As a result, officers then arrested Alexander Lwanga, 27, of Roxbury, and charged him with Operating Without a License.
