A road rage shooting in Tennessee resulted in the arrest of one man on charges of two counts of attempted murder. After nearly hitting two men on motorcycles, Rodney Lee Scott allegedly backed his suburban utility vehicle into another motorcycle driver as the two bikers exited the interstate.
According to a Dec. 18, 2013 report by Inquisitr, the suspect has been jailed, and his bond has been set at the sum of $1 million. Ironically, the road rage shooting happened on the very same street were Scott was taken into custody in 2002 on assault charges. Those charges were later dropped.
The road rage shooting incident reportedly escalated after Scott nearly struck the two men on motorcycles, and the men responded by waving their arms at him. Scott allegedly responded by making obscene hand gestures, and then stopped his vehicle to put it into reverse, striking one motorcycle and knocking it over.
The unfortunate incident didn't stop there, however. The two motorcyclists and the witness trailed the alleged suspect home before calling police. While the three men were waiting for the police to arrive, Scott reportedly yelled racial slurs at one of the motorcyclists. That's when he disappeared into the garage and reappeared with two guns, one in each hand, before discharging his weapon at the two victims.
Tyler Lakin, one of the motorcyclists, reportedly suffered three gunshot wounds in the back during the road rage shooting. He was transported to the University of Tennessee Medical Center where he remains in stable condition, according to reports.
Scott has also been charged with fleeing the scene of an accident. If a blood alcohol screening comes back positive for the presence of alcohol, Scott could face additional charges.
