Man allegedly shot at trucker in road rage encounter on I-10
GRAMERCY - A man from Baton Rouge allegedly fired a handgun at another person after causing a wreck on I-10 Tuesday morning.
Louisiana State Police says Christopher Williams, 47, was booked Wednesday on several charges tied to the attack.
Williams was allegedly driving erratically on I-10 east in Gramercy when his vehicle hit the 18-wheeler. The driver of the semi called police to report the driver, but Williams allegedly stuck a handgun out the driver's side window and shot at the truck. The gunfire struck the tractor-trailer, but no one was hurt.
After firing the weapon, Williams reportedly fled the scene.
State troopers were later able to identify Williams as the aggressor, and he eventually turned himself in.
He was booked into the St. James Parish Jail for aggravated assault with a firearm, aggravated criminal damage to property, illegal carrying and discharge of weapons, and reckless operation.
