A man has bonded out of jail after being arrested for pulling out a knife during a road rage incident.

Police said 56-year-old John Hunsinger was taken into custody following the incident that happened around 4:40 p.m. on April 13 in front of a church on Oak Meadow Drive.

According to reports, Hunsinger allegedly used a knife during the incident after the victim’s rear windshield sprayer sprayed Hunsinger’s vehicle.

Police said Hunsinger became upset near Centennial High School and held up the open blade knife while threatening those in the other vehicle.

He then followed the vehicle to Oak Meadow Drive where he blocked the victim’s car and approached them.

An officer then pulled up and intervened.

Hunsinger has been charged with the felony of aggravated assault. He was free on a $7,500 bond and has been scheduled to appear in court at 1 p.m. on April 27.

Authorities said Hunsinger could face up to six years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000 if he’s convicted.
