AUBURN, N.Y. (AP) - Police say they had to use pepper spray and a stun gun to subdue a 28-year-old central New York man after a road rage incident.

Authorities say James Knight of Auburn was arrested outside his home Saturday night after hitting a police officer with a five-gallon bucket.

Both men were treated at Auburn Memorial Hospital. Knight was arraigned on multiple charges.

Police say Knight confronted a couple after the driver failed to use his turn signal. Officers say an argument ensued and Knight started beating the hood and side of the couple’s car with a collapsible baton.

Auburn police say the woman in the car called 911 and Knight took off for his home when he heard police sirens.

Police say Knight also had a samurai sword in his car.
