Perrin Dobyns Arrested After Being Caught On Camera Pointing Gun During Road Rage Incident
An Indiana man has been arrested following an extreme case of road rage this weekend in Kentucky.
Indiana State Police arrested Perrin Dobyns at the Branchville Correctional Facility in Branchville, Ind., where Dobyns reportedly was working, according to WKYT. Over the weekend, Dobyns was caught on camera rolling down the passenger side window of the car he was driving and pointing a gun at the person taking the video.
"I was concerned for everyone's safety. I could get his plate and report it to police and let them follow up on it. I didn't expect to get shot at in the process," said David Kollar, the camera operator who said he saw the man, later identified as Dobyns, driving erratically.
WLEX reports that state police say Dobyns may have even fired the weapon, but no one was hit.
"Road rage can be a very dangerous situation," Kentucky State Police trooper Robert Purdy. What is uncommon in this case is it escalated where someone allegedly fired a pistol."
The video was taken on Sunday afternoon on I-75 near mile marker 97. Kentucky State Police say the victim called them after the incident. In the video, you can see a man in a black sedan pulling up, rolling down the window, and pointing the gun at the victim.
Dobyns is charged with first-degree wanton endangerment, which is a felony. He will be extradited to Kentucky to face the charge.
