SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - An act of road rage landed a man behind bars, according to the Shasta County Sheriff's Office.
Authorities say 19-year-old Jayden Gomez tail-gaited 48-year-old Brandon Clayton just before 2 p.m. on Wednesday.
When the man lightly tapped his brakes on Cascade Boulevard to tell Gomez he needed more space, he sped up in front of Clayton and abruptly applies his brakes.
When Clayton turned on to Autumn Harvest Way, Gomez followed.
At some point, the sheriff's office says the two vehicles drove side by side, and the drivers of the vehicles exchanged angry words.
During the dispute, Gomez shot the man two times in the face with a BB gun.
The suspect was tracked down shortly after and arrested.
A 17-year-old girl at the scene was also arrested after deputies said she interfered, cursing and spitting at them.
