Disorderly conduct

Police witness road rage incident: A Twinsburg man, 66, was cited with disorderly conduct after a township police officer reported witnessing a road rage incident between the man and a Chagrin Falls man while the officer was putting gas into his vehicle at a service station at he intersection of Olde Eight and Valley View roads at a little after 10 a.m. April 23. The officer said he first heard the Twinsburg man yelling and then saw him get out of his car to yell at the Chagrin Falls man in an SUV while the Twinsburg man was stopped in the Valley View Road left turn lane to turn north onto Olde Eight. Police said this impeded traffic when the light turned green.

Police said that after the two men pulled off the road, the Twinsburg man claimed that while following the Chagrin Falls man westbound on Valley View, the SUV was traveling below the posted 35 mph speed limit. When the Twinsburg man flashed his headlights to get the Chagrin Falls man to speed up, he said, the Chagrin Falls man slowed to 15 mph. The Chagrin Falls man said he was traveling at 35 mph the whole time, but because he was driving for his job, he would not go over the speed limit.
