Kennesaw man sentenced to 15 years in road rage incident

MARRIETTA, Ga. (AP) – A Kennesaw man who pulled a gun on a family during a road rage incident will spend 15 years in prison.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports James Matthew Colomb was sentenced Wednesday of aggravated assault in the Nov. 1, 2014 incident.

Cobb District Attorney spokeswoman Kim Isaza says Colomb was driving his Mercedes-Benz on Barrett Parkway when another driver “inadvertently cut him off in traffic.”

Isaza says Colomb followed the vehicle to a store where he confronted the driver in front of his wife and three children. The man apologized and Colomb started to leave and the man smiled.

Isaza says Colomb put his car in reverse, opened his door and pointed a handgun at the victim, saying he could ‘wipe the smile off his face.’

Colomb left without firing.
