When Road Rage And Guns Mix

Many of us have heard of or witnessed road rage incidents firsthand when people roll down the window and yell or even give the finger. But in this latest incident, a 51-year-old doctor, shown in an eyewitness video pulling out a gun and allegedly firing it, has been extradited from Indiana to Kentucky where he will face a judge Wednesday.

CNN's Pamela Brown reports.

David Kollar says he noticed Perrin Dobyns driving recklessly in his black sedan and passing cars in the emergency lane on I-75 in Kentucky.

Kollar says it was his filming of the reckless driving that led the other man to reach for his weapon.

"I get behind him to get his license plate number and I had my phone out so I could record it. I'm sure he saw me back there trying to videotape him and was upset about that."

The driver then rolls down his window, pulls out what appears to be a pistol and aims it squarely at the motorist filming him.

Kollar says, "The window comes down, he pulls up a gun and fires, almost immediately he fires. As soon as I see the gun come up, I just hit the brake and he missed me."

The man immediately gets off the interstate, goes home, and calls the police.

Kentucky State Police say there was no evidence Dobyns hit any person or vehicle with the alleged gun shot, but they do credit Kollar's video in helping lead them to an arrest.

Dobyns faces a felony charge of wanton endangerment, which is punishable by up to five years in prison on conviction.

He will appear before a judge in a Madison County, Kentucky.

His attorney could ask for a hearing in which a trooper would have to testify in front of a grand jury that would then choose to indict Dobyns or drop the case.
