Tennessee road rage leaves biker shot after following driver home

A Tennessee man’s road rage has him facing attempted murder charges today. Rodney Lee Scott allegedly shot his gun several times at a man on a motorcycle and also backed his SUV into another motorcyclist. This road rage started after Scott almost hit them on the Interstate as they tried to exit the road, according to WDEF.com on Dec. 18.

Scott is held in jail at the Know County Sheriff’s Department on $1 million bond. After Scott nearly missed them on the interstate, the motorcyclists started waving their arms. After making some obscene gestures, Scott stopped his vehicle in the street, put it in reverse and backed into one of the bikers, knocking them over. The bikers called 911 as Scott fled the scene.

The bikers followed him to his house. This is when Scott came out of his house and started shooting. Tyler Lakin, one of the bikers, was hit four times and he’s listed in stable condition at an area hospital.

Why would these bikers follow Scott to his home, they had to have the license plate of his vehicle after all this time went by. It sounded as if they might have antagonized Scott a bit, which turned out to be a dangerous thing to do.

After the Scott knocked over one of the bikes, this gave some insight into what he was capable of. This should have been a clue for these bikers to back off and let the police deal with this road rage suspect. So why would the bikers put themselves in danger and follow this guy home? This turned out to be a costly mistake for the biker in the hospital today.
