A driver accused of waving knife at other motorists on the Beltline Tuesday was also reportedly impaired, police said.
Madison police said officers responded at 8:25 p.m. to a report of a man in a black SUV on the westbound Beltline who was slowing down next to other vehicles, leaning out the window and waving a knife.
A witness told police the driver repeated the action to about six other motorists, slowing to as low as 20 mph and flashing the knife. Police said the caller followed the SUV onto the I-90 North and saw the driver continue the act.
Police caught up with the driver, 33-year-old Jesus T. Davidson, of Madison, near High Crossing Boulevard.
Davidson was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct while armed, possession of drug paraphernalia and a parole violation. He was also cited on suspicion of operating while intoxicated and reckless driving, police said.
