Several eyewitnesses, including the driver, reported to police that Ramsey had threatened to kill the other guy. Both vehicles' occupants exited their vehicles and physically separated the males.

Ramsey was released from custody on Sunday, according to court filings from Washington County. On October 19, you will be required to appear in court. On Tuesday, court officials did not reveal Ramsey's name or the attorney's name.
