Motorist Allegedly Shot At Car for Driving Too Slow

23-year-old Finus Harvey, of Flint, Michigan has been arrested and charged with two counts of felonious assault for allegedly firing a shot at a motorist on U.S. 23.
Two men, ages 53 and 55, were traveling north on U.S. 23 Friday afternoon when they had to brake for slowing traffic. According to the complaint, a 2002 Buick Century pulled up next to them in the slow lane and the two men in the Buick "began yelling." Words were exchanged between both vehicles and in response Harvey pointed a pistol at them and fired it one time.
Harvey told police that the did show his gun during the exchange but denied firing a shot. He said he was angry because the other car was doing 45 mph in the fast lane.
Police found a handgun in Harvey's car as well as a spent shell casing. Harvey told police the casing was left there from when he was shooting the gun days earlier.

Two men, both with concealed weapons permits, fire shots at each other while driving

27-year-old Eric Adamany, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, told police he had just left a Taco Bell restaurant and pulled over to send a text message when a gold Dodge Magnum pulled up next to him. A passenger looked at him and said, "What are you looking at white boy?" showed a chrome handgun and fired a shot at Adamany's car.
"I immediately grabbed my gun, which is just sitting here, and I stuck it out the window and they took off," said Adamany. "They fired over 50 rounds before I ever returned fire."
The police report says Amamany "began to fire his gun at the Dodge Magnum, emptying his clip in an attempt to shoot out the Dodge's tires." He told police "how he is right-handed but shot the gun with his left hand while driving on the freeway because he was steering and calling 911 at the same time."
Roy Scott, the driver of the other car, told police that he and a friend were driving when a blue car passed him. The other driver "mean mugged" him and showed a black handgun. Scott then grabbed his gun and displayed it before driving off. Scott says that Adamany fired first so he fired back. He told police that he fired back out his driver's window, pointing backward over his shoulder with his right hand, while steering with his left.
According to police both men have concealed weapons permits.
Adamany has been charged with first-degree recklessly endangering safety, use of a dangerous weapon. No charges have been brought against Scott at this time.
