Road rage ends in alleged crossbow assault

| 10/18/2006

In Arkansas, the 26-year-old driver of an SUV gave new meaning to the expression "road rage" last weekend when he allegedly fired a crossbow at a motorist who'd flipped him off.

According to The Associated Press, the crossbow's arrow shattered the other driver's rear window, but didn't injure him.

Police arrested Wayne Dierks and charged him with drunken driving, driving with a suspended license and committing a terrorist act.

The archery and crossbow hunting season for deer and turkey is open in Arkansas, so it's not unusual that someone would have a crossbow in their car - just that they'd shoot it at another driver.
