Gun aficionado loses right to bear arms after road rage incident
63-year-old Leonard Roscitto, of Hailey, Idaho will spend 19 days in jail, pay a $1,000 fine, be on probation for three years and lose his right to bear arms after being found guilty of firing at least two shots at another motorist in a road-rage incident.
The incident took place last August when Rosicotto and John Kauder had a confrontation that started on state Highway 75. According to court documents, both men stopped their vehicles and Roscitto got out of his vehicle, pulled out a handgun and fired at least two shots in the direction of Kauder.
Roscitto apologized to the court saying, "I've never thought about doing anything like that. I would never premeditate anything like that, but it did happen. I am extremely sorry for what did happen."
Rosicotto is described as a "gun aficionado". His attorney said that losing his gun rights is the worst punishment of all for Rosicotto.
