Parker County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a road rage call Sunday, Oct. 14, 2012.
Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said a Poolville man was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon stemming from the incident.
As of Monday morning, William James Carr, 60, remained incarcerated.
The victim dialed 9-1-1 around 1:15 p.m. Sunday. When deputies arrived on scene, Carr reported he intentionally shot out the window of a Ford Mustang, after the vehicle had “cut him off.”
During the incident, a Texas Parks and Wildlife game warden had detained Carr. The game warden reported he stopped at Ranger Highway and Jones Road, due to a subject holding Carr at gun point on the side of the road, in front of a vehicle.
The victim stated he made a lane-change near Ranger Highway and Bowie Drive, thinking he gave the truck behind him plenty of room.
Further down the road on Ranger Highway near Greenwood Road, he heard a loud popping noise thinking he had blown a tire, but realized his rear windshield had been shattered.
The victim told deputies he pulled over and dialed 9-1-1, when he observed Carr drive past him and pulled over ahead of the victim’s Mustang. The victim then stated he pulled a weapon out when Carr began approaching him.
The game warden then arrived on scene and ordered the victim to put the weapon down and detained the pair.

Parker County Judge Mark Riley and the county’s engineering firm Freese and Nichols left the monthly meeting of the Texas Transportation Commission in Austin on Thursday, with approval for up to $6.9 million in reimbursement to the county for the I-20 Interchange at Old Brock Road which will eventually connect with the Ric Williamson Memorial Highway.
The Texas Department of Transportation funding, known as pass-through financing, allows for the county to pay for the project and be reimbursed over time by the state for the transportation construction costs, once the project is complete. Funding for construction of the interchange will come from the Parker County Transportation Bond Program which was approved by voters in 2008.
