A Texas police officer is currently facing charges for allegedly shooting a woman during a road rage incident that occurred earlier this month. A reserve deputy constable, Kenneth Caplan was arrested this past Wednesday and will face aggravated assault charges after firing his gun at a woman who honked at him, according to reports.
According to Gawker:
The unidentified 20-year-old woman told the Houston Chronicles he was driving down the 610 South Loop on Nov. 11 when a driver cut her off. She told reporters she honked at him and then tried to get around him—at which point he allegedly rolled down his window and started firing a gun at her..
The other driver, now identified as Caplan, drove alongside her, rolled his window down, pointed his weapon and opened fire, investigators said.
“I just started crying because I knew I was going to die,” said the victim. “I wanted to call my mom to tell her I love you.”
Caplan and his female passenger then fled the scene.
Investigators said the female passenger leaned back in her seat while Caplan shot out the window.
“He was aiming at me and I thought he was going to cuss me out. It didn’t register that I was, you know, going to get shot,” said the victim. “The blood was in between my nails, just crazy blood, and all over my cellphone, just covered.”
Fortunately for her, she was able to pull over and call 911. The woman was hospitalized for three days with minor injuries.
