Former Cop And Sac State Prof. Charged In Road Rage Incident

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A Sacramento State criminal justice professor and ex-cop has been charged with pointing his gun at another driver during a road rage incident.

According to Merced County prosecutors, 60-year-old David Swim pointed a gun at another driver on November 30th during a road rage incident while the two were on Highway 99 in Merced.

Swim’s lawyer, John Virga, says his client argued with the driver but didn’t pull a gun.   Although, Virga acknowledges Swim did have a licensed gun under the seat in his car.

Swim spent 22 years in law enforcement before becoming a criminal justice professor.

Officials at Sacramento State say Swim has not been suspended but they are looking into the charges.
