Arlington police seized a gun and marijuana in three arrests stemming from a road rage incident.

A reported road rage incident led to the arrest of two people on outstanding warrants and drug-related charges and a third for possession of a firearm by a felon and marijuana possession, Arlington police say.

Police were responding to a report of squealing tires Friday night in the 400 block of Highlander Boulevard, police spokesman Lt. Christopher Cook said.

Officers "located three cars which appeared to have been in a road rage situation," Cook said.

In one car was Jerome Robinson, who was later charged with illegal possession of a firearm by a felon and marijuana possession.

The second car yielded two arrests. Jillian Cross was arrested on two charges of drug paraphernalia possession, two outstanding warrants and one count of marijuana possession, Cook said.

She "may face additional charges related to identification cards and credit cards located in her possession," Cook added.

The occupants of the third vehicle were released, Cook said.

The Arlington Police Department tweeted, "Road rage is down thanks to enforcement, but here is why we started. We must find out who murdered Dylan Spaid on June 25, 2017." The department is looking for a black 2014-16 BMW 5 series.

One shuttle driver was arrested after injuring another in an incident last month that shut down the campus for over an hour.

Police were responding to a road rage call after a man displayed a gun at Interstate 20 and Hulen Street, Sunday, Sept. 24. The suspect was later captured.
