Lt. Marshall was running stationary radar on Lempster Mountain. Rd. at 3:59 pm when he observed a Honda Pilot coming toward him reaching a maximum speed of 94 mph.  He pulled out after the vehicle, which slowed drastically upon passing the cruiser, and stopped the vehicle in Washington Village.  The operator, Keagan Manning-Hardy, age 25, of Washington stated that he had been involved in a road rage type incident with another vehicle and was trying to get distance from that vehicle.
