BEAVERTON, Ore. -- The Beaverton driver who used a handgun to threaten three people in a road rage incident last month has pleaded guilty.
Anderson Harguth, 32, pleaded guilty Monday to two counts of menacing and unlawful use of a weapon. The rest of the charges against him were dismissed.
The victims told police that a man in a silver Hyundai tried to ram their vehicle and pointed a handgun at them, according to officer Mike Rowe of the Beaverton Police Department.
The incident occurred at Southwest Scholls Ferry Road and Southwest Cascade Avenue. Harguth's 9-year-old daughter was in the car when it happened.
One of the victims, who wanted his identity kept anonymous, told KGW that he was terrified when he saw Harguth cock his gun and "You could see the bullet go in.”
The victims gave officers the license plate number of the Hyundai involved in the road rage and Harguth was arrested as he pulled into his own driveway.
Officers found two handguns in Harguth's vehicle and he was also carrying a spring-loaded knife, Rowe said.
