Police arrested a Texarkana man Tuesday after he fired shots at a vehicle he was involved in a wreck with and fled the scene, the Texarkana Gazette reported.

Gregory Williams, 49, was involved in a two-car crash about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to a police news release the paper cited. Williams reportedly became upset and fired several shots at the other car before driving away.

Officers who responded found Williams in a parking lot near the scene trying to hide a gun below a floor mat in the back hatch of his Jeep Wrangler, Texarkana police spokesman Shawn Vaughn told the newspaper.

They reportedly found evidence that several shots had been fired from the Jeep, with some striking the interior. Police said three bullet holes were found on the fender and hood of the other vehicle.

Police arrested Williams on charges of deadly conduct and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, according to the newspaper. As of Friday afternoon, he was being held at the Bi-State Justice Building jail, authorities said, where bail is reportedly set at $75,000.

    don't let him out ! If he gets that "deadly " mad over just an accident. he does not need to be out in public. especially if he ever has to call customer service.

    Yes, do not call AT&T customer service.
    He should never be able to own a gun again. But we know he can go buy whatever he wants whenever he wants. No matter what the charges.
