PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) — A Sequim man must serve 60 days in jail for waving a handgun at a couple during a road-rage incident.

The Peninsula Daily News reports Clinton Caldwell was sentenced Friday to the maximum 364 days for unlawful display of a weapon, with 304 days suspended.

The 67-year-old, who immediately filed notice to appeal the guilty conviction, was ordered to begin serving his sentence July 11.

The confrontation between Caldwell and the couple on U.S. Highway 101 east of Port Angeles occurred four days before Caldwell was arrested on unrelated felony child-sex charges.

Caldwell was one of a dozen suspects arrested in March in a child-sex sting.

He has pleaded not guilty to first- and second-degree attempted rape of a child. The case will go to trial next month.
