Police called to Paducah VA clinic after road rage altercation

PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

Police were dispatched to a VA clinic in Paducah after an apparent altercation between two men after a road rage incident.

Paducah McCracken County 911 received an emergency call from the Veterans Affairs Office and Clinic located on Perkins Creek Drive. 

The caller stated that two men were in a fight on the parking lot. 

The VA clinic went on lockdown as a precaution until McCracken County Deputies and officers of the Paducah Police could arrive. 

By the time officers arrived, the parties had separated.

An investigation revealed that the two men, Michael Ralston, 36, of Metropolis, Ill., and Michael Mount, 50, of Paducah, Ky., had been traveling east bound on Interstate 24 from Metropolis when the incident started.  

Ralston had originally called to report a reckless driver (Mount), and then followed him to the VA clinic where Mount was en route to for an appointment.

Once the two arrived, Ralston confronted Mount and the incident turned into a physical confrontation, at which time someone called 911.

The incident was resolved without further incident. The investigation is ongoing.
