Still got some of that Buckeye nastiness. Cant be taking that nastiness out on innocent people though.

I dunno. Kinda sounds like self defense from what I've read in the papers.
 
Him on a motorcycle versus a guy in a truck?  Truck wins every time.

No excuse for this.   Getting pissed off behind the wheel is all part of driving in Columbus but this is lunacy.
 
edit:   I know he was on a motorcycle.   just using a phrase. 

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

Idiots. Hopefully both will lose their driver licenses. If you can't control your temper, you shouldn't be driving. Luckily nobody got killed.

All it takes is some time on the road to see plenty of those that make you wonder what they are doing behind the wheel of a car. Thankful no one was hurt and hope everyone can think of this when someone cuts you off or otherwise. Let them be the jerk. Don't join their club.

Throw the asshole in a jail cell.  For Christ's sake, he almost murdered a man.

I live about 1 mile from where this happened, in fact I ran down the sidewalk past Auto Zone not terribly long before that.  They had 36 closed for hours but I hadn't heard anything other than a shooting, which is very strange in Delaware in itself.  This is even more bizarre, and I agree with whoever said they should both lose their license.  Why is someone on a motorcycle even carrying a loaded gun to begin with?  And if you're driving a truck while being shot at would you stop at a local business to confront the shooter?  Both are idiots.

We should strive to keep thy name, of fair repute and spotless fame...

What's odd about Stillwagon carrying a loaded gun on his motorcycle? Now, personally I think he should have his CCW revoked because you don't draw your weapon on someone and hit them with it because of roadrage. Apparently he didn't mean to fire it as it was an accidental discharge (even then why was his finger on the trigger).

But the story says that he fired 3 times on the ramp, then twice in the lot then tried to pistol whip him.

C'mon, Jim. When it came to loss of temper, even Woody drew the line at reporters and sideline markers.

I told my dad about this story, (he played with Stillwagon at OSU), & he just laughed and said: "that's Stillwagon...he still doesn't like to take any sh*t from anybody". Jim' s a good guy, one of those tough throwbacks, who just lost his cool. Not a great situation though, to pull a gun after a road rage incident. Sssssssimma down

Losing his cool would be yelling at the guy, flipping him off, and maybe some swearing. Driving like an idiot, pulling a gun, trying to hit someone with it, and shooting him = not a good guy.

He will definitely lose his CCW.  If you are involved in any incident and it is not found to be self defense, most CCW laws will have the prosecution automatically revoke your CCW.
