Teacher Suspended After Alleged Road Rage Incident

A Sevier County Music teacher is suspended without pay after an alleged road rage incident. Thursday, officers were called to the Taco Bell on the Dolly Parton Parkway for reports of a man pulling a gun.

The victim said the suspect got impatient because the restaurant got her order wrong. He started honking his horn and the two argued back and forth. The woman says the man got out of his car and approached aggressively. At one point she says he pointed a gun at her.

Officials identified the man as John Wade, a music teacher at the Pittman Center Elementary School. The school has suspended him without pay. Officers say they found a 9 mm in his car.
