Huron County sheriff’s deputies arrested a Milan motorist who allegedly followed another driver and displayed a knife in an apparent road rage incident.

Toby Magi, 36, of Main Street, was charged with first-degree misdemeanor aggravated menacing.

The incident occurred at about 10:15 a.m. Wednesday, according to the sheriff’s office and Milan police reports.

A 9-1-1 caller, who was southbound on Ohio 601, reported being followed by another vehicle, and its driver wielded a knife, the Milan police report states.

A deputy found the two vehicles on Ohio 601 near Ohio 61 and a Chevy Malibu driven by Magi pulled over, a sheriff’s report states.

Magi allegedly denied having a knife and refused to exit the car. The deputy ordered him out of the car at gunpoint and arrested him, the report states.

The 9-1-1 caller told a deputy he passed Magi’s Chevy on Ohio 13, and the vehicle then pulled alongside theirs and Magi allegedly held out a pocket knife, according to the report. The deputy found a folding knife in the car.

The deputy transferred custody of Magi to Milan police, who took him to the Erie County jail. Magi later was released on a promise to appear at future court hearings.
