Road rage charges dropped against Las Cruces man

A Las Cruces man arrested for threatening another man with a knife in the Smith’s parking lot in February had his case dismissed recently, according to court records.
Thomas Moore was arrested Feb. 25 after allegedly threatening another man with a knife during an apparent “road rage” incident that occurred in the Smith’s parking lot.
However, through Moore’s attorney, Moore and the alleged victim were able to amicably resolve their differences outside of court.
“The case was dismissed, they both did not want to proceed,” Attorney Bill Snowden said. “This was the right resolution.”
If the case was allowed to continue, Moore was facing one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a fourth-degree felony.
According to police reports, the incident started when Moore became aggravated by a driver, who he claimed was following him too closely. In alleged retaliation, Moore slowed his car down, which apparently made the other driver allegedly turn on his high beams. (The incident happened at 8:15 p.m., Feb. 25).
