Last March there was a "road rage" shooting in San Diego involving a woman and her son in one car, and an off-duty policeman in the other. The woman was intoxicated and, after confronting the officer, was backing away from him in her car when he fired five rounds into her windshield. Two bullets struck her but, fortunately, none struck her son. The woman was almost immediately charged with drunk driving, the officer was placed on paid administrative leave while the case was investigated.
Yesterday the officer was charged with felony"grossly negligent discharge of a firearm" with "two enhancements for causing great bodily injury."
