A German man, dubbed the 'Autobahn Sniper,' stands charged with firing over 700 bullets at drivers.
According to the BBC News, "A man has appeared in court in the German city of Wuerzberg accused of firing more than 700 bullets at vehicles on motorways over five years. The man, identified as Michael Harry K, 58, had talked of a "war on the autobahn", according to police."
The 'Autobahn Sniper' sought to place the fear of shotgun blasts into the hearts of bad drivers.
As reported by the BBC, "He is accused of venting his anger at bad drivers in a spree that left one woman seriously wounded. He faces five charges of attempted murder and a lengthy prison sentence if found guilty."
Nevertheless, the 'Autobahn Sniper' had poor aim, since nobody was killed.
