LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Louisville man accused of pulling the trigger in a case of road rage appeared in court Monday. Forty-nine-year-old Gerald Bryant pleaded not guilty to charges of assault and wanton endangerment. The judge kept his bond at $10,000 full cash.
The shooting happened on the afternoon of March 12 at Fern Valley Road and Old Shepherdsville Road.
Metro police say Bryant got into an argument with another driver. Bryant told police that driver cut him off.
Detectives say Bryant had a 4-year-old in the back seat when he shot the man several times. Police say that child is a relative of Bryant's.
Police arrested Bryant after a witness followed him home.
The victim is still at University hospital in serious condition according to police. His identity has not been released.
WAVE 3 did some digging and found this isn't the first time Bryant's had issues on the road. A year ago he got a speeding ticket, in 2004 he was arrested for DUI, and in 2007 he was ticketed for following a vehicle too closely.
Metro Police are still investigating. An arrest slip says Bryant also shot at another vehicle while traveling east on Old Shepherdsville Road. No one was hurt in that incident.
