Got shot at on I-35 tonight

I was coming back to Killeen from Austin tonight at about 1am. Was traveling north on I-35 when a late 90s 540i came up behind me and started swerving all over the 3 lanes trying to get me to race. He kept at it for a few miles going from the inside lane to the outside lane and back. I was keeping a constant speed hoping he's get bored and take off. He then pulls beside me with an empty lane between us and I hear my passenger side window shatter. I speed up and get the hell off the highway at exit 261 and call the police.

Don't know what they shot me with, but if anyone knows about 3 youths out at 1am in the area tonight, give me some names. There was also a black Audi of some sort following them. I think they were together. Looked like a new A5 possibly.

I'm not pissed I got shot at, I'm pissed I didn't get his plates!

Dude, that sucks. You're lucky to not have been hurt. Hope you're not a target of some kind, and that these guys get snagged (or drive off a bridge).

Hmmm...Over a year ago, when I had my Evo, a Harley Davidson motorcyclist hit the right side of the car extremely hard...And then he took off going 70-80 mph on a 40 mph zone....I was like F**K IT!!!....And I followed him all the way while on my cell with 911. I got his exact license plate and then I backed off. The city police department caught him around 2 months later after the incident. All I have to say is: BUSTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is completely insane, random violence. At least your okay, and glass is easier to deal with than sheetmetal. Did you find a slug? Hopefully it was just a BB gun.

That sucks...glad you're ok.

What part of I35 did this happen? I know the area around Rundberg Ln (exits 243-236)is the a$$hole of Austin.

Holy hell man... I'm glad you are ok. That is absolutely nuts. Not hearing the shot might be a good sign that it was a bb gun or a small caliber, but geez... either way i'm glad it didn't hit you.

This is going to sound like a wierd thing to say, but at least he got your window and not the body of the car. The window is an easy fix, bodywork and paint would be a pain.

I'm glad you're ok, there are assholes everywhere.
