Puyallup police officer charged in ‘road rage’ car accident

Puyallup police officer, Mark Delight,27, has been charged with second-degree assault and reckless driving after a car accident on May 31 that authorities say was a result of “road rage.”

According to a report by Tacoma’s The News Tribune, Officer Delight allegedly became enraged when another driver, Tim McCleary, honked at him at a green light and then went around him. McCleary said that Delight made an obscene gesture at him and then deliberately rear-ended his car. He said that Delight then chased him several miles in Puyallup and forced him off of the road and brandished a gun at him.

Road rage is described as “when a driver uses their motor vehicle as a weapon to assault another driver or passenger on the roadway.”
