Bellevue Man Charged In Road Rage Incident

A  Bellevue man has been charged after police say he displayed a hand gun during a road rage incident in Dubuque over the weekend. 22 year old Austin Litka was arrested at around midnight Sunday in an area near West Locust and Ellis Streets. He is charged with assault while displaying a weapon. The incident happened at around 11:15, when a car driven by 26 year old Nnekha Hood pulled from the intersection of Locust and West 15th Streets almost hitting a vehicle in which Litka was a passenger. Hood then caught up to the other vehicle and stopped in front of it. All of the occupants got out of their vehicles. That’s when police say Litka approached Hood and her two passengers exposing a 45 caliber semiautomatic handgun that was on his right hip, while pointing with his left hand and yelling for the women to get back into their car. Litka denied threatening the women and told police the only reason the gun was exposed is because his sweatshirt inadvertently came up over the gun as he approached the women, but traffic camera footage confirmed what the women told police.
