Corpus Christi Police arrested a man after he shot at another driver in a road rage incident in the 3000 block of Laguna Shores Road.

The 21 year old male driver told Officers that he was driving his Cadillac home when he noticed that a Chevrolet Tahoe was traveling behind him.  The driver thought that the Tahoe looked familiar and was a friend of his so he began to slow down.  When the Tahoe passed, the driver realized it was not his friend’s vehicle.

Once the driver of the Tahoe got in front of the Cadillac he hit his brakes several times and began yelling obscenities and making threats to the other driver.

During the confrontation, the driver of the Tahoe produced a handgun and fired a shot in the direction of the driver of the Cadillac.

Once the victim notified police of the incident, they were able to locate the driver of the Tahoe parked in the Wal Mart parking lot, located at Flour Bluff Drive and South Padre Island Drive.

Officers arrested the driver of the Tahoe, Christopher Brotherton (09/12/1994) for aggravated assault.  They also confiscated a Taurus 9 millimeter handgun they believe was used by the suspect.
