SMYRNA, Tenn. (WSMV) - One person was arrested after a reported road rage incident on Interstate 24 in Rutherford County on Friday evening, according to the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office.

In an apparent road rage incident, 32-year-old Depizio Seay fired at least two rounds toward another driver’s truck while driving down I-24, according to police. One of the shots reportedly hit the other driver’s truck, but no one was injured.

The RCSO said the 40-year-old driver of the truck then got out of his vehicle, chased Seay down and held him at gunpoint after calling 911.

Officers found the two drivers at a Dunkin’ Donuts on Sam Ridley Parkway, where Seay was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and possession of marijuana.

He remains in custody at the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center.

Officials said Seay is a wanted fugitive out of Illinois.
