One man was charged, another left recovering after being shocked with a stun gun following a road rage incident reported to Salisbury Police.

According to the report, Jonathan Charles Bledsoe, 32, of W. Council Street, didn't like the way Eric Nianouris drove through his neighborhood earlier this week.

Bledsoe followed Nianouris and pulled beside him at the stoplight at the intersection of W. Innes Street and Statesville Boulevard.  At the stoplight, Bledsoe motioned for Nianouris to roll down his window, and once he did, demanded that Nianouris apologize for driving too fast on Council Street.

Nianouris did apologize, according to the report, but both men continued to argue.  They drove their cars to a parking lot of of Summit Avenue and then confronted each other again.

Police say after words and threats were exchanged, Bledsoe pulled out a combination flashlight/stun gun and placed it against the chin of Nianouris.

Another car drove up and the driver got out and implored the two men to "break it up."

Police charged Bledsoe with assault inflicting serious injury and communicating threats.
