The incident occurred just after 7:30 p.m. Friday when a Platteville, Colorado, police officer pulled over a woman in her car north of Platteville after a road rage incident involving a firearm was reported earlier in the day in the neighboring town of Fort Lupton, per a news release from the CBI, one of several agencies investigating the incident.
The woman stopped her car just past the railroad tracks and the officer parked the patrol car behind her on the tracks, CBI said.
