A 27-year-old parolee has been arrested on accusations he opened fire on another vehicle in an apparent act of "road rage," the Pulaski County sheriff's office said.

Andrew Cody Cortinez of Little Rock was arrested about 9:30 p.m. Friday on charges of first-degree criminal mischief, possession of a firearm by a certain person and three counts of committing a terroristic act. He remained in jail Saturday with bail not yet set.

According to a report from the sheriff's office, 21-year-old Camden Havens said he was driving eastbound on Pinnacle Valley Road Monday when he and his two passengers spotted a pickup "driving wildly" behind them. Havens slowed down to let the truck pass, at which point the pickup went around and "teed up across the road" in front of them, the report said.

The pickup driver "then jumped out of his vehicle and ran to the passenger side of the Havens' silver Toyota 4-Runner and started banging on the windows telling them to get out," according to the report.

Havens attempted to drive around the pickup and the man then pulled out a handgun and fired at least three times as the 4-Runner fled the scene, authorities said. One round hit a window and one hit the bumper; no one in the vehicle was hit.

"All three occupants of the Toyota averred that they had never seen the man that shot at them before and had no idea what could have prompted his actions," deputy Paul David Keller wrote in the report.

It wasn't clear how Cortinez was identified as a suspect, though the report noted investigators attempted to obtain fingerprints from where the shooter banged on the Toyota's window.

The victims identified Cortinez as the shooter in a photo lineup and he later "confessed to shooting at the victims," police wrote in an arrest report.

Online records show Cortinez is on supervised parole through 2015 in Little Rock.

I think most of you missed the point - 'supervised parolee'. ?
