Colorado Springs Police say a road rage incident between a driver and a bicyclist Monday escalated into a brief standoff and ended with a man being arrested.

Curtis Scrivner, 46, was arrested about 4:30 p.m. Monday after an argument with a bicyclist near the intersection of Old Farm Drive and Old Farm Circle West. 

A bicyclist told police that he was riding his bike on Austin Bluffs Parkway when Scrivner, who was driving a Jeep Cherokee, started yelling at him for riding his bike in the road. A little bit later, they both stopped at an intersection and continued the exchange. At some point the bicyclist said Scrivner pulled out a weapon that he believed was a small handgun. The bicyclist used his phone to take pictures of Scrivner’s license plate.

Scrivner tried to take the bicyclist’s phone, but he was able to ride away and call police. A short time later, police found Scrivner in the backyard of his nearby home. He ran into his house, but eventually surrendered to police. He was arrested on suspicion of felony menacing and aggravated robbery.
