March 14, 1997

A motorist who found himself facing a gun when he confronted a tailgating driver on Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard used pepper spray on the man and ran back to his car, county police reported.

Christopher D. Morrow, 20, of Pasadena told police he was westbound on Route 100 near Catherine Avenue shortly after 7 p.m. Tuesday when a green Chevrolet Cavalier entered the highway and its driver began tailgating him.

Morrow drove to Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard, stopped at Furnace Branch Road and got out of his car, police said. The other driver got out, pulled a handgun and threatened to shoot him, according to the police report.

Morrow said he sprayed the man in the face, ran back to his car and drove to the Eastern District police station to report the incident.
