ATLANTA - The two men charged with aggravated assault and reckless conduct after shots were fired in a road rage incident on Interstate Highway 285 say they acted in self defense.
Authorities say Bobby Smith and Mikos Wright were involved in a cat-and-mouse game on the busy highway. They say Smith opened fire after the two vehicles crashed.
The two appeared in court Tuesday and a judge set a Dec. 7 hearing.
Smith told police Wright's truck forced his car into the emergency lane and knocked it into a guardrail, and that he fired his gun because he feared for his safety. Both vehicles were impounded by police.
