(WTVA) —  A man from Booneville is under arrest after a driver reported he shot at her car while both were driving on Highway 45 Alternate in Monroe County Wednesday afternoon.The Monroe County Sheriff's Department says 28-year-old Justin Sartain was taken away after he was pulled over on Highway 45 near the Green Street exit in Tupelo by a Verona police officer.He is accused of firing two shots and running a car off the road north of the Highway 41 exit near the Fair Oil Company convenience store."He was just cussing," said driver Aleeyah Moon of Okolona.  "He tried to swerve me off the road the first time. And then once he tried to swerve me off the road the first time or whatever, the second time, he came up beside me. He just started shooting at me."
"I kind of ducked down in my seat trying to see what was going on," said Darius Wren of Okolona, who was riding with her cousin when the shots were fired.One of those shots went through the right taillight of Moon's car.She says it was on a third approach by Sartain that he ran her car off the road.Lieutenant Brandon Davis with the Monroe County Sheriff's Department says Sartain did not give officers any problems when asked to stop.Davis adds that Sartain admitted to firing at Moon's car."He thought that maybe she had run him off the road, and so he just got mad," said Davis.According to Davis, Sartain will be charged in connection with the road rage case in Monroe County and in Tupelo for being a convicted felon with a gun.
