LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a man after he fired a gun into a truck with two children inside during a road rage incident.

According to an arrest report, the incident occurred on the night of Friday, Sept. 9, just after 9 p.m. on I-265 southbound near Stonestreet Road.

Police say 44-year-old Timothy Corbin was driving in the southbound lane when he was "involved in a road rage incident." At that point, he allegedly rolled down the driver's side window, pulled out a handgun and fired a shot into the victim's truck.

According to the arrest report, the victim was driving a truck with a bench seat containing two small children.

There is no indication on the report that anyone was hurt.

Later, police say they were able to link Corbin to the license plate number of the vehicle involved. 

Police say that during an interview with the registered owner of the vehicle Corbin had been driving, they found text messages between her and Corbin. The text messages discussed his girlfriend's gun, and asked his girlfriend to tell police officers that he was with her during the time of the incident.

Corbin is a convicted felon, according to the arrest report.

He was arrested on Tuesday afternoon and charged with three counts of first degree wanton endangerment and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.

On Wednesday morning, Corbin appeared before a judge -- and a not guilty plea was entered on his behalf.

"Sir, these allegations could have easily resulted in the death of one or more people," said Judge David Holton. "I will set your bond at $100,000 cash."

Judge Holton went on to further criticize Corbin's alleged behavior.

"You're presumed innocent, but this behavior is totally unacceptable and uncalled for in a civilized society," Judge Holton said.
