Police say a 67-year-old man tried to provoke a gun duel during a road-rage incident in an upscale Cleveland suburb.

A statement from Westlake police said last Tuesday, William Keener of Westlake deliberately crashed his car several times into a vehicle driven by a 64 year-old Westlake woman. Her 71-year-old husband was in the front passenger seat.

According to police, Keener threatened to kill the couple after both vehicles pulled off the road. Police say the 71-year-old man warned Keener that he had a concealed carry permit and picked up a holstered gun, prompting Keener to pull a gun from his waistband and dare the other man to draw. Westlake police soon arrived and arrested Keener, who is free on bond.

Court records did not indicate if Keener has an attorney.
