Florida Mercedes driver gets schooled immediately...by himself.
It seems like a pretty good idea to go out for a ride in your Mercedes with a handgun and an assault rifle on board, doesn't it? Especially if you're the sort of person who tends to drive like a douche, nearly kill a mother and her children and then wave a gun in their faces. According to NBC – 2 News in Florida, here's the Fort Myers mother's account of what went down when she noticed the driver in the Merc driving dangerously: "I honked the horn...like what are you doing? He brake-checked us to the point where I had to slam on my brakes."
But what happened next was incredible. One of the kids in the woman's car noticed that the man was waving a gun at the family. The woman passed the Mercedes, trying to get away, and noticed the driver following her across a couple of lanes. Next, he produced an assault rifle: "I saw the scope and I thought 'Oh my God.' " Suddenly, though, the Mercedes stopped in the middle of an intersection. Apparently, the driver had shot himself in the leg with his own rifle. He was hopping around on one leg, bleeding and screaming. Soon, the man, who was identified as Alex, was being treated by pedestrians before being treated for his wounds at local hospital.
