A Baton Rouge man was arrested after shooting at another driver in St. James Parish, State Police said.

At about 9 a.m. Tuesday, troopers responded to a call from a driver on Interstate 10 near La. 641 at Gramercy. The driver said he was traveling eastbound on I-10 in a tractor-trailer when he saw the driver of a black Hyundai Sonata driving erratically, according to State Police spokesman Trooper Taylor Scrantz.

After the Hyundai caused a minor crash, the driver of the Hyundai, later identified as 47-year-old Christopher Williams, pulled out a handgun and fired a shot at the tractor-trailer, a police report said. Gunfire struck the front of the trailer; Williams fled the scene, Scrantz said. 

After troopers identified Williams as the driver, Williams turned himself in. 

Williams was booked into the St. James Parish jail on aggravated assault with a firearm, aggravated criminal damage to property, illegal carrying and discharge of weapons and reckless operation.
