Road Rage Leads To Arrest


On Tuesday April 9, 2024, Lincoln City Police arrested 61-year-old Gregory Valdivieso after he brandished a gun during a road rage incident. At around 2:46 PM, Lincoln City Police Officers responded to a report of a driver who brandished a handgun at another driver while they were traveling through Lincoln City. The victims reported that the suspect initially pointed his fingers at them in the shape of gun as he passed them outside the south end of town. Once in the city, the victims began passing the suspect driver and as they did he brandished a handgun so they could see it. The victims advised they had recorded this on their cell phone.


Lincoln City Police Officers located the suspect vehicle at the south Circle K Store parking lot. The driver was contacted and identified as Gregory Valdivieso of Toledo, Oregon. Valdivieso initially denied having or brandishing a gun during the incident, but after being confronted that there was video evidence of the incident, he admitted there was a gun in his vehicle.

An LCPD Officer applied for and was granted a search warrant to search Valdivieso’s vehicle. During the search the officers located a handgun that matched the description of the one brandished by Valdivieso during the incident.


Valdivieso was arrested on charges of Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, and Menacing. He was subsequently transported to the Lincoln County Jail where he was lodged on the listed charges. With traffic congestion increasing as the summer months arrive, the Lincoln City Police Department would like to encourage all drivers to keep the safety of themselves and others at the forefront of their mind while driving.
