People need to take chill pills...

A grandfather riding with his wife and 9-year-old grandson on Saturday shot a motorcyclist in the chest in O'Fallon, Mo., during what police described as a road rage incident.

But it was the motorcyclist who reportedly started the incident, which occurred about 1:30 p.m., O'Fallon police said.

The 49-year-old motorcyclist, riding with his wife on separate bikes, was apparently upset that the grandfather cut off his wife while on Interstate 70, police said.

The grandfather and the motorcyclists got off at the Bryan Road exit. The male motorcyclist walked up to the grandfather's car at a red light. The two men began arguing. The motorcyclist then assaulted the 65-year-old driver, police said.

And that's when the grandfather pulled out a .380-caliber semi-automatic pistol. He shot the motorcyclist once in the upper left chest, police said.

The motorcyclist, a St. Ann resident, was taken to an area hospital. His injury does not appear life-threatening, police said.

The grandfather, an O'Fallon resident, left the scene, first dropping off his wife and grandson at home before driving to the police station for an interview. Police said their investigation is continuing. Police did not release the names of the people involved.

Reminds me of this Epitaph:

This is the grave of Mike O’Day, who died maintaining his right of way.

His right was clear, his will was strong, but he’s just as dead as if he’d been wrong.
