PARLEYS CANYON, Utah — Utah Highway Patrol arrested a man after they say he pulled out a gun and shot at another vehicle in a fit of road rage in Parleys Canyon Thursday.

The man has been identified as Grant Newman Gutierrez.

UHP Troopers detained Gutierrez at the Foothill Drive exit and were holding him for questioning Thursday evening. He was later booked into jail and faces charges that include aggravated assault, discharge of a firearm and possession of a controlled substance.

Troopers said a driver called in to report that someone fired at least two shots at them, and it may have been over something as simple as a lane change.

UHP said they were able to catch up to Gutierrez and conducted a high risk traffic stop — meaning they pulled the man over at gunpoint.

According to UHP, Gutierrez has been cooperating with investigators.

"It's something we'll screen with the county attorneys, and I'm sure the charge will be pretty severe in nature," said Sergeant Nick Street, Public Information Officer for UHP.

While at least two shots were fired at the vehicle, UHP said no on was injured and they aren't sure if any of the bullets actually hit the other car.
