PULASKI COUNTY, MO (KMOX) - A Ballwin man who fired shots on I-44 to satisfy “an urge” is due in a Pulaski County, Missouri courtroom today.

The preliminary hearing for Sepid Salem, 59, is scheduled for today in Waynesville.

The Highway Patrol says Salem told a passenger in his car that he “had an urge” so he pulled over near Devil’s Elbow, stepped out of his car, and fired four or five shots across the highway.

No one was hurt but one bullet went through the sleeper of a tractor trailer. A witness notified authorities who arrested Salem in Rolla.

The truck who was struck had a camera which recorded the shooting.

Salem is charged with first degree assault, unlawful use of a weapon and property damage.
