An off-duty police officer was arrested and charged after he was caught on camera pulling a gun on his neighbor following an alleged road rage incident in New York.

According to police, 32-year-old Douglas Debonet got out of his car in the city of Selden and broke the side-view mirror on a vehicle involved in the alleged road rage incident, reported CBS New York.

Debonet later went to the driver’s home and threatened that person’s father at gunpoint during an argument in Long Island.

Debonet and the victims are reportedly neighbors.

CBS New York reported the victims are people of color, and the family said they believe the incident was possibly racially motivated.

Debonet was charged with criminal mischief and menacing. He was suspended from the NYPD without pay.
