Man Charged in October Road Rage Incident Enters Plea

7/11/14 - A South Lyon man has entered a plea in connection with a road rage incident last fall. 50-year-old Aaron Eugene Stein of South Lyon pleaded no contest to charges of assault with a weapon and possession of marijuana. As part of the plea deal, prosecutors have agreed to not amend or add felony firearms charges. The victim in the case testified during a previous court hearing that she feared for her safety and believed Stein had a gun during the October 16th incident. The victim said she passed him on a local road but that he started honking his horn and tailgating her, eventually passing her about a half mile down the road. Both stopped their vehicles and proceeded to argue, which is when the victim alleged Stein made a comment about her not having a gun and she noticed him holding a dark item in his hand. The defense argued that there was no evidence to indicate there really was a gun involved, but the victim maintained she believed it was and feared Stein would shoot her. A judge ultimately ruled there was enough evidence to bind the case over to Livingston County Circuit Court, where Stein will be sentenced August 14th. (JM)
