SPARKS, Nev. — An off-duty sheriff’s deputy was in the right place at the right time when a road-rage incident broke out in Sparks.
The deputy ended up holding two suspects at gun point Wednesday afternoon after he witnessed a physical confrontation in which a pipe and a knife were produced on Greg Street near Rock Boulevard.
The deputy called Sparks police but one suspect fled the scene in a vehicle before officers could respond.
The other suspect turned out to be the victim and cooperated with the officers.
A couple of hours later, police tracked down Robert Mosher and arrested him for suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, simple battery and obstruction.
No one was hurt.
It’s not clear if Mosher has a lawyer or will be appointed one at a pending court appearance.
