Off-Duty Cop Charged With Shooting Woman For Cutting Him Off In Traffic

The woman, whose name was not released by the station, said the bullet grazed the left side of her head, allowing her to avoid a major injury.

The victim is understandably concerned that the cop may retaliate against her for reporting him. Silly person! An officer of the law would never dream of such a thing, his job is to protect and serve!

An off-duty cop got upset at a woman for cutting him off and allegedly fired his gun into her window, hitting her in the head.

Now Houston Police Officer Kenneth Caplan is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to Click2Houston.

The woman, whose name was not released by the station, said the bullet grazed the left side of her head, allowing her to avoid a major injury.

"I feel like I got a taste of death, honestly," she told the station. "My heart was slowing down and I couldn't really breathe."

The incident took place on Nov. 11. The woman said Caplan cut her off so she did the same to him. That got him so upset, she said, that he pulled out his gun and fired into her vehicle.
