A man suspected in a road rage incident was arrested by Elk Grove Police.

On Tuesday, September 28 police responded to Elk Grove Boulevard and Laguna Springs Drive regarding fight between two men.  When officers arrived, it was determined that James Allen Bauder was allegedly driving his vehicle when another vehicle being driven by the victim pulled in front of him.
