LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock man is behind bars after what police are calling a road rage incident.

Police say 25-year-old Dereck Rolando Garcia began chasing a couple in a Corvette near 82nd and University Saturday night.

The couple said he tailgated their car and flashed his SUV's lights at them. The driver says Garcia shot at them at the intersection of 82nd and Quaker. The couple called police, who met them at 82nd and Frankford. That is where they surrounded Garcia's SUV and took him into custody.

Police say Garcia's 9-year-old brother was in the SUV along with a 9mm handgun and narcotics. Garcia is now in the Lubbock County jail on aggravated assault charges.
