Albany --  A South Georgia motorist made his feelings known by shooting at another driver.  

Dougherty County Police say Sunday morning around 11:00 AM, William Goff became "enraged" about the driving conditions on Sylvester Road.

He began blowing his horn at another driver, and cut in front of other cars, even pulling a knife out and pointing it at another driver. Then he became more violent.    

"As he left he said he pulled out some kind of weapon and fired at his vehicle," said Dougherty County Police Lt. Tom Jackson.

Goff was charged with reckless conduct, and could face other charges.
