AUSTIN (KXAN) - A man was charged after firing a weapon at another car Wednesday night during an apparent road rage incident in northern Travis County.
Police say 33-year-old Donathan Harris fired at a man near FM 620 and Comanche Trail about 7:30 p.m. and then admitted to holding that man at gunpoint when the vehicles stopped, the arrest affidavit said.
"Do you want me to finish ya?!" Harris allegedly told the victim, according the document.
Police said three other people, including a 5-year-old boy, were riding in Harris' vehicle at the time of the shooting.
Harris told police he shot at the other car after fearing for his safety, saying the other driver was ramming their car repeatedly, the Travis County Sheriff's Office said.
Upon further investigation, detectives determined Harris was the aggressor and fired at the other vehicle causing the two cars to collide.
The victim said he was in so much shock that he swerved into Harris' car, the affidavit said.
Harris was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a 2nd degree felony. The felony charge is punishable by imprisonment for a term of 2 to 20 years and a fine up to $10,000.
