Woman Shoots Driver After Getting Hit In With Slurpee During Fight
A 36-year-old Michigan woman was arraigned Wednesday on assault, weapons and drug charges after she allegedly fired a shot at a man during an apparent road rage incident.
Via Detroit News:
Harrison Township resident India Marchea McDougal told deputies she opened fire after the man exited his 2003 Chevy pickup during an altercation in Harrison Township, approached her vehicle and tossed liquid in her face, according to the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office.
She was charged in 41B District Court with assault with intent to murder, felony firearm and possession of less than 25 grams of a controlled substance.
Deputies found numerous bottles of prescription narcotics inside her vehicle, said Lt. John Michalke, spokesman for the sheriff’s office.
McDougal faces life in prison on the assault charge. She received a bond of $750,000 cash or surety at arraignment and is due back in court Oct. 26.
The woman was arrested around 5:45 p.m. Tuesday after a 40-year-old male driver called 911 to report that a female motorist in a 2004 Lexus SUV opened fire following an argument while stopped at a red light on Crocker at Metropolitan Parkway, officials said.
McDougal also called police after the incident and said she opened fire because she was “scared for her life” after the man exited his truck, approached her car holding a Styrofoam cup and tossed liquid in her face.
The man, a Warren resident, told police the altercation began when he “exchanged words” with McDougal a few blocks north at Crocker and Reimold, before both motorists proceeded to the red light.
The complainant told authorities he exited his truck to confront McDougal about her driving. He said he remained on the driver’s side of his vehicle until the argument escalated and he returned to his vehicle.
