BURLINGTON, Ont. - Police west of Toronto say they've arrested a 41-year-old man after he allegedly brandished a fake handgun at a driver during a road rage incident.

Halton Regional Police say the incident happened Saturday morning in Burlington, Ontario, when they received reports of a man waving a gun at a driver from his car.

They say the man reportedly lowered his window and then pointed the fake gun at a driver.

Investigators say they found the man a short time later and found a replica pistol.

They say the fake gun is legal to possess, but they're laying a weapons charge because the driver used it in a "flagrant manner.''

Police say nobody was hurt in the incident.
