Armed Defense Against Road Rage Assailant

“I was forced to make a decision that no man should have to make,” said Kenneth Catlett of Louisville, Ky. Catlett received a phone call from his son about a driver who had followed him off the interstate. As the son pulled up to the house, Catlett came outside with his gun and was accosted by the other driver, who claimed the young man had cut him off in traffic. 

When the angry man came out of his car holding a firearm, Catlett and his son wrestled him to the ground and disarmed him. Instead of leaving, the man retrieved a hammer from the vehicle and charged them. Catlett shot the assailant, who drove away in his car and was later found dead. While the armed citizen regrets the choice he was forced to make, it’s fortunate that he and his son are both unharmed.
