PULASKI, Va. (AP) – A local man has been found guilty of shooting a crossbow at another car during a road rage incident.

The Roanoke Times reports that the jury in Pulaski handed down its verdict Wednesday. It recommended that Glen McNeal Grubb spend six years behind bars.

Authorities said Grubb chased a Ford F-150 in his fiancee's Pontiac Grand Am early last year. Her two daughters, then ages 4 and 6, were in the back.

Authorities said the cars pursued each other down twisting, narrow roads in western Virginia. Grubb fired the crossbow out his window while driving. It struck the metal just to left of the Ford pickup's rear cab window.

The jury acquitted Grubb of trying to murder the driver of the pickup. A judge will sentence him in August.
