Grand Old Police Blotter Classic: Republican Road Rage Edition
On February 27, David Keene, 21, of Washington, DC, was indicted by a federal grand jury on three counts for firing a shot at another motorist on the parkway on December 1, 2002. Keene was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon; using, brandishing and discharging a firearm during a crime of violence; and making a false statement in connection with the acquisition of a firearm. Keene and another motorist were heading north on the parkway last December when Keene fired a round from his .40 caliber pistol through the rear window of the other vehicle. The bullet lodged in the back of the driver's seat. Keene continued north on the parkway while the other motorist called police and reported the shooting. Keene also provided false information to a federally-licensed firearms dealer when he purchased the pistol in August, 2002. Arraignment has been set for March 7. Detective Todd Reid and the USPP Criminal Investigation Branch investigated.
