A road rage incident involving an off-duty police officer is receiving national attention in the wake of the Michael Brown case in Ferguson, Missouri, according to the Huffington Post. An off-duty reserve deputy constable with Harris County, Kenneth Caplan, is accused of firing his gun into a woman’s vehicle after the woman cut him off on November 11th. The woman claims Caplan cut her off first, and she decided to do the same to him. The bullet grazed the left side of the woman’s head, so she suffered only minor injuries, but feels shaken up nonetheless. Caplan, who was not wearing his uniform at the time of the incident, is now facing charges for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
