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.
