Driver Shoots Suspect After Being Forced To Stop Vehicle And Pulled From His Car


ATLANTA, GEORGIA — Police say a man was forced to pull over by another driver, and then phyically removed from his car by the suspect, ,who was driving another vehicle. The driver was then attacked by the suspect. It is not known if the two knew each other.

Officers were called to the 900 block of Brady Avenue around 11 p.m. for a report of a shooting. The victim said he was driving in the area and was forced to stop by a man in another car, according to Atlanta police spokesman Officer Steve Avery.

The suspect then pulled the victim out of his car, leading to a “physical struggle” between the two, Avery said in a news release. At some point during the fight, the victim shot the suspect, who then fled the scene, Avery said.


The suspect was later located at a hospital seeking treatment. He will face charges of kidnapping and simple battery.

No serious injuries were reported with the armed citizen.

Being pulled over by a police officer is one thing, but being forced to pull over by another driver is a whole different ballgame. Use your vehicle to your advantage, whether it be to get out or in some cases, to ram the other vehicle. PS: This is not legal advice.

Luckily things worked out for the good guy in this one. Be mindful that road rage is real, and can have very serious consequences.
