Driver faces gun charge in Barrington Twp. road rage case
A Texas man who punched a motorcyclist Tuesday in a Barrington Township road rage case also faces a weapons charge, the Cook County sheriff's office said Wednesday.
A sheriff's deputy saw Farid Sagidov, 40, of Quitman, Texas, punch a 49-year-old man about 3:50 p.m. Tuesday on 1200 block of South Northwest Highway, according to a news release. Authorities said the assault happened after Sagidov refused to allow the victim to merge in front of his pickup truck.
The deputy arrested Sagidov and recovered a loaded gun, two additional magazines and two knives from his truck, the news release said. Sagidov did not have a FOID card or concealed carry license, police said.
Sagidov is charged with felony aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and misdemeanor counts of reckless conduct, bodily harm and battery.
Sagidov's bond was set at $5,000 Wednesday in Rolling Meadows.
