72-year-old Eugene Hinbaugh was arrested on suspicion of assault after a July 3 road-rage incident in Cochise County, officials say.
The incident started about 2 a.m. when Hinbaugh was forced off the road by a pickup truck that had moved into his lane on a dirt road that had significant ruts from recent rains. Hinbaugh’s Honda hit a fence, Carol Capas, a spokeswoman for the Cochise County Sheriff’s Department, said in a news release.
Hinbaugh followed the other vehicle and rammed it three times on Hereford Road, Capas said.
The truck driver then stopped and fired at the Honda several times with a a semi-automatic AK-47 gun, Capas said.
Hinbaugh was not wounded. He was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault and endangerment.
