Dashcam shows Florida man shooting through his own windshield at another car





It's the Wild West out there, nowhere more so than in the Sunshine State, where Central Florida's WESH 2 news reports that a man fired several shots through his own windshield after he says the driver of another car pointed a gun at him. Dashcam footage captured the incident, which took place on Florida's Highway 417 in Orange County.

The driver, Marco Mazzetta, posted the footage to YouTube (naturally), and it shows him squeezing off several shots at a Nissan 370Z, all while traveling at 93 mph. According to Mazzetta, the Nissan was being driven aggressively and it bumped Mazzetta's truck when he tapped the brakes. Then it passed him, and the driver pointed a gun at him out the window. That's when Mazzetta opened fire.

"I know this video doesn't capture my smartest moments," Mazzetta wrote in a text to WESH 2, then adds, "but I hope any idiot criminal with a gun watching thinks twice before loading, brandishing & aiming their firearm at someone over a traffic infraction." .........(more)

3. How about slow down and let the other car drive away.

You have to charge this guy with reckless discharge of a firearm.

5. Florida Man acting like a Trumpanzee

He wanted to fling his poo while driving. Not the smartest thing, but that's part for the course.

6. That's got to be illegal. Why isn't that fool in jail?

He shot several shots through his own windshield on a public highway.

WTF?

7. Hard to see how this is self-defense if the other car is ahead of him...

Would love to see the front-facing camera video, doubt that the other driver was pointing a gun back at the following car...

Anyway, at the very least a gun-nut has to pay for a new windshield. Normally they face no consequences at all down here...

10. It looks like that's exactly what the front facing camera shows.

The video clip is in the OP’s post.

The shooter here is an idiot but I doubt he will be prosecuted. The other driver hit his vehicle, passed him, pulled a handgun and pointed it at him. I don’t see a jury in Florida convicting this guy of anything.

12. Ehhh...

The other driver hit his vehicle, passed him, pulled a gun on him and pointed it at him. I think it is a stretch to say the shooter was “looking for a reason to use it” when the other guy drew first.

It would have been smarter to attempt to disengage rather than start blasting through his windshield ... but I’d put better than even odds that the guy who drew first would have matched speeds with the shooter if he had tried to slow down or stop.

14. No gun, when other driver flashes gun, this guy likely backs off

Should have regardless

Not worth it

But he had a gun and looked for a reason to use it and endangered anyone around him

I hope his insurance rates go sky high, they take away his guns, and safe lite does not pay him $400.00 for his windshield replacement.
