A 19-year-old man was arrested Thursday after allegedly brandishing a replica handgun during a "road rage" incident in Dartmouth, N.S., police said.

Halifax District RCMP say two men driving in the same direction on Main Street got into a "heated argument" on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m.

"During the argument one of the men brandished a handgun," Cpl. Guillaume Tremblay said in a news release.

Later that day, police arrested the 19 year old at a home in Mineville, N.S., and seized a vehicle. They also seized a replica handgun.

The man was charged with possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and is due back in court next month.
