A Texas police officer was arrested last week after allegedly shooting a woman in the head — while off-duty — in a fit of road rage.

Kenneth Caplan, a 34-year-old reserve deputy constable with Harris County Precinct 6, was arrested on Nov. 26 and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. According to KHOU, Caplan fired at another driver on Nov. 11 after she cut him off on the 610 Loop in Houston (retaliation, she said, for him cutting her off moments before).

The victim told KHOU, “All of a sudden I’m driving, and this guy cuts me off. He was about to hit me. I switched to the other lane, I got in front of him and I cut him off. I guess that pissed him off. He went like that and he just fired at me. And then all of sudden I heard a ring in my ear.” She said she spent three days in the hospital and received eight staples in her head.
