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.
