A Fairbanks man was sentenced Monday to three years in prison for ramming and shooting at a truck in a February road rage incident.

According to a criminal complaint, Tucker Flynn Holmgren, 34, chased a man, his fiancee and her four children after the man accidentally pulled in front of Holmgren while leaving Chena Hot Springs Road. Holmgren swerved into the man’s truck and shot multiple rounds at it as the man fled down Nordale Road.

The man’s fiancee told Alaska State Troopers she heard a minimum of 18 shots fired during the entire incident and she was terrified something bad was going to happen to her kids.

Troopers found Holmgren parked at Midnight Sun Elementary School on Bradway Road with a partially consumed 12-pack of beer and a black handgun in plain view inside his truck, according to the complaint.

Holmgren was charged with felony driving under the influence, felony first-degree weapons misconduct, six counts of felony third-degree assault, felony refusal to take a breath-alcohol test, misdemeanor fourth-degree weapons misconduct and misdemeanor fifth-degree criminal mischief.

Holmgren pleaded guilty Monday to felony DUI, two counts of third-degree assault and the weapons misconduct charge. He was sentenced to a composite sentence of three years in prison with an additional two years suspended, a $10,000 fine, a permanent license revocation and forfeiture of the vehicle that was used in commission of the crime.
