Motorist Fires Gun After Truck Allegedly Cuts Him Off


Charges have been filed against a man who allegedly fired a gun after being cut off by an 18 wheeler in Chesapeake, Virginia, last night.

Police say that the incident began when a white truck cut off a black Chevy Tahoe on I-64 West. The Tahoe driver, 24-year-old Jesse Dillon, then pulled up next to the truck, yelling at the truck driver. Dillon then reportedly fired a gun shot out of his window, firing a shot into the air. Police say that the gun was not aimed at the truck.

A third party witness called the incident into the police.

A detective spotted the Tahoe and tried to pull it over, but Dillon refused to stop, leading to a short pursuit. Dillon finally pulled over and police surrounded his vehicle and arrested him.

When police searched his car, they found not only the gun, but marijuana, cocaine, and drug paraphernalia.

Police have not been able to locate the truck driver to collect a report.

Dillon was charged with discharging a firearm, eluding, possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

No injuries were reported as a result of the incident.
