Screen Shot 2021 07 16 At 2 21 06 PmArkansas authorities are searching for a motorist who parked on I-55, hung out the driver's side window of his car and fired shots at a passing tractor-trailer. The incident was captured on video and made public by police in the hopes it will lead to the man’s arrest.

On July 2, a truck driver was traveling along I-55 near the Memphis bridge when he passed a Chevrolet Mailbu that was parked alongside the interstate. As he was passing, the suspect leaned out of his vehicle and fired three or four shots at the truck before speeding away.

The Crittenden County Sheriff’s Office said the unidentified trucker was not hurt, but the incident damaged the vehicle. The shooting was reported when the driver reached Tennessee, but Arkansas authorities say they just learned of the crime after the trucking company downloaded the video.

There is a $2,000 reward for information leading to the suspect’s arrest. If you know anything that could help police locate him, call Crittenden County Crime Stoppers at (870) 732-4444.
