Crossbow allegedly fired while going up Drapers Mountain

PULASKI COUNTY, Va. – Authorities said one man is in jail after firing an arrow from a crossbow during a road-rage incident on Tuesday night.

The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office responded to the incident, which happened on Wysor Road in the Draper area of Pulaski County at 8 p.m.

The victim told authorities that he was driving near Calfee Park when a gold sedan began tailgating him up Drapers Mountain toward the Draper area.

Then, once when the vehicles entered the four-lane section of the road, the road-rage incident continued and the driver of the gold sedan fired a bolt from a crossbow, which impaled the victim's truck, according to the Sheriff's Office.

The investigation led deputies to a residence in the town of Pulaski, where the driver of the sedan, 23-year-old Glen Grubb, was found and arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, shooting a missile at an occupied vehicle and two counts of child endangerment.

Grubb is being held at the New River Valley Regional Jail.
