A couple driving a van with four children ended up in handcuffs in a bizarre road rage incident after police say they attacked another driver, who then pulled out a gun to protect himself.

Nicholas Flanagan, 30, and Jessica Ratliff, 26, were arrested on charges of battery and disorderly conduct after they jumped out of their vehicle in a parking lot on Dec. 4 in Wausau, Wis., and attacked Scott Van Patter, according to the police report.

Van Patter, 48, told police he showed his semi-automatic .40 caliber handgun, which he has a license to carry, to chase away Flanagan and Ratliff until the authorities arrived.
