A Tennessee road rage shooting led to the arrest of one man in a very serious incident that occurred on Monday. On Dec. 18, ABC News reported that Rodney Lee Scott was arrested and charged in the road rage shooting of a motorcyclist whom he allegedly shot "several times." Scott is being held on $1 million bond.
"When the motorcyclists began waving their arms after Scott nearly hit them, first he made obscene gestures, then stopped his SUV in the street and backed into one of them, knocking him over, the police statement said. He was charged with fleeing the scene," ABC News reports.
The Tennessee road rage shooting occurred after the initial incident. The incident mentioned above was witnessed by a few people -- one of whom tried to help at the scene while three others followed Rodney Lee Scott in his SUV and called police. Scott led the other witnesses to his home where he proceeded to yell racial slurs at them. He went into his home and came out of the garage wielding two guns and opening fire right then and there.
"The sheriff's department says Scott struck Tyler Lakin three times in the back and once in the wrist and continued firing at him as he lay in the road. Lakin was taken to the University of Tennessee Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition Tuesday afternoon," ABC News reports.
The Tennessee road rage shooting left Scott facing two counts of attempted murder. He also faces a charge for leaving the scene of an accident. Other charges are pending at this time.
