MOUNT AIRY, Md. (AP) — Maryland State Police have charged a woman and her two sons with assaulting a trooper in a department store bathroom following a road rage encounter.
Authorities say Trooper Johnathan Horner was investigating a road rage incident when 42-year-old Traci Conners attacked a bystander recording the encounter.
Police say when Horner tried to stop the attack, Conners’ 17-year-old son, Jacob Conners, attacked him and ran into a store.
Troopers say Horner found Jacob Conners in a restroom trying to flush brass knuckles and a knife down a toilet. Authorities say that as Horner restrained him, Traci Conners and her other son, 19-year-old Steven Conners, attacked the trooper.
