A Bucks County Department of Corrections officer has been charged after an alleged off-duty incident.
Aliyou Kiadee, 35, of Philadelphia, was arrested Sunday after Warrington Township police were called to Easton Road (Route 611) for a report of a road-rage incident, authorities said.
Kiadee has worked at the Bucks County Correctional Facility since November 2021, according to county spokesperson James O’Malley.
Warrington Township police said a motorist reported being cut off by a Hyundai sedan on Easton Road. The Hyundai’s driver, who was identified later as Kiadee, allegedly yelled at the motorist and then brandished a black handgun from the glove compartment.
The driver notified 9-1-1 and provided the Hyundai’s license plate, police said.
Horsham Township officers in nearby Montgomery County ended up stopping the Hyundai at Easton and Horsham roads, authorities said.
Police stated they recovered a black semiautomatic handgun from the Hyundai.
Kiadee was arrested at the scene, police said.
Kiadee was charged with terroristic threats, simple assault, and reckless endangerment. He was preliminarily arraigned Saturday night by on-call District Judge Mick Petrucci and released on unsecured bail.
The county had no comment on the charges against Kiadee.
Kiadee’s arrest is the second of a corrections officer this month.
Corrections Officer Aaron Mayers, 25, of Doylestown Township, was arrested earlier this month and indicted last week for his alleged role in a New York City homicide.
