Man crashes car, fires gun in fit of road rage

Things took a quick turn for the worse on Interstate Rt. 495 in Littleton, Massachusetts last week when a man in a 1998 red Honda was observed weaving in and out of traffic. In a fit of road rage, he allegedly fired a gun at one vehicle and crashed into another as he attempted to exit the highway.

Police were able to track him down to his apartment located in Marlboro, Massachusetts, where they found two .38 caliber shells and a black revolver discarded in the bushes. He was subsequently arraigned and held at without bail facing numerous very serious charges including negligent operation of a motor vehicle, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and assault to murder. Police also stated that he did not have a license to carry the firearm or the ammunition used in the incident.

When facing such serious charges, it is important to make certain you protect your rights with a strong criminal defense team. If found guilty of the charges, the man will face long-term consequences including stiff penalties and likely a long term prison sentence.

Having a team at your side can make all the difference in the world. They may be able to work with the prosecutor to negotiate a plea deal, and they may analyze the evidence and try to look at the incident to see if all proper procedures were followed. If you are facing such charges, you owe it to yourself, your family and your future to make every effort to fight the charges, protect yourself, and determine whether any other options may exist.
