Gun pointed at driver on I-5, Carlsbad man arrested

VISTA, Calif. (CNS) — A Carlsbad man was jailed Thursday on suspicion of pointing a gun at another driver during a road rage confrontation, officials said.

The incident happened on Interstate 5 in Solana Beach, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Joseph Laiosa, 38, allegedly threatened the other driver with the gun on the south side of the freeway around 12:20 p.m. Tuesday, shortly after they argued over lane positions on an on-ramp from Manchester Avenue to Encinitas.

Laiosa remained at large until Thursday morning, when sheriff’s deputies located him and notified CHP officers, who took him into custody, Officer Hunter Gerber said.

Laiosa was incarcerated at Vista Detention Center on suspicion of illegally wielding a weapon and possession of fentanyl.
