LA PINE, OR -- A La Pine man was arrested at his home, Tuesday, after allegedly threatening a group of motorcyclists. Neighbors called 911 just before 5 p.m. to report a man with a knife standing in Old Mill Road, following a road rage incident. Deputies say 76-year-old Carlo Lucia was upset about the bikers’ speed and dust on the dirt road.
Investigators say Lucia followed the group in his van and confronted them several times before getting out with a weapon and making specific threats. He later went home, where he was contacted by deputies and arrested. They discovered his knife was actually a homemade weapon fashioned from a wrench.
Lucia is charged with two counts of Menacing, two counts Unlawful Use of a Weapon, two counts of Recklessly Endangering and Reckless Driving.
