A North Texas man is in critical condition after he was shot in the head Friday night in rural Collin County.
The incident started in McKinney when a Ford Taurus cut off a Ford pickup.
Bobby Schule, 47, of Flower Mound (see photo) chased the car for 10 miles into rural Collin County.
Schule caught up to the car, fired a gun, and hit the passenger in the head.
Schule sped off, but a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper in pursuit chased him down.
Police arrested Schule on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony. He is in the Collin County jail, and bail is set at $25,000.
The passenger is in critical condition at Parkland Hospital in Dallas.
Schule told officers that he fired the gun but did not intend to hit anyone,
Coming the day after the tragedy in Arlington where a driver who was high killed two people, one by firing his gun at a Good Samaritan coming to his aid (see earlier blog post), our roads seem like they are getting extremely dangerous.
I urge drivers to exercise extreme caution, obviously not to engage in horseplay or risky maneuvers, and call the police if you suspect you are the victim of road range.
