Gun alleged in traffic row

Michael Bukosky allegedly pointed gun

Waukesha - A 36-year-old man from Oconomowoc was charged with allegedly pointing a gun at another man he thought was from Illinois during a Jan. 4 driving dispute.

Michael J Bukosky, 525 Frederick Court, Oconomowoc, was charged on Jan. 31 in Waukesha County Circuit Court with a misdemeanor count of pointing a firearm at another.

According to the criminal complaint:

Police were dispatched to the area of North Grandview Boulevard and Silvernail Road at approximately 6:35 p.m. on Jan. 4. Complainant Nathaniel Forseth said he was driving west on I-94 and exited at Grandview Boulevard. In so doing, he said he accidentally cut off another vehicle. The driver of the other vehicle then followed Forseth, with each of the drivers trying to speed up and get in front of one another. The other driver got in front of Forseth and began slamming the brakes intermittently, at which point he said he switched lanes.

Both vehicles stopped at the intersection of Grandview Boulevard and Silvernail Road. Forseth told police that he and Bukosky began cursing at each other, with Bukosky allegedly saying, "I'm going to kick your (expletive) to your state." Forseth said the vehicle he was driving belonged to his grandfather and had Illinois license plates.

Forseth said Bukosky then allegedly pulled out a black handgun and pointed it at the him saying, "That's right, don't (expletive) around in a (concealed) carry state."

Both Forseth and Bukosky called police. Bukosky told police he thought Forseth pulled out a gun during the incident, and pulled out his gun in response. Forseth told police he did not possess a handgun and a search of his vehicle did not turn up any weapons. Forseth was not charged.

If convicted of all charges, Bukosky could face up to nine months in prison, $10,000 in fines, or both.

His next expected court date is Feb. 11.
