KINGSPORT — A Kingsport motorist has been arrested for allegedly brandishing a handgun during a fit of road rage — marking the third such incident in as many months on Model City roadways.

Christopher Adam Lipps, 33, of 105 Lone Oak Drive, is charged with aggravated assault in Tuesday’s incident. A Kingsport Police Department report says it occurred at approximately 3:20 p.m. on Moreland Drive.

The alleged victims, each 21, heard an engine revving and then observed a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado riding their bumper. They claim the truck’s driver, later identified by police as Lipps, continually backed off then sped back up to tailgate.
