A violent road rage incident in Acadia Parish has earned a Eunice man charges including one for attempted murder.

Acadia Parish Sheriff K.P. Gibson said 34-year-old Mark Miller was stopped and arrested while chasing his victim on La. 13 in northern Acadia Parish.

Investigators determined Miller began chasing the victim's vehicle after the victim passed Miller. The suspect then fired multiple shots into the victim's vehicle. Deputies intercepted the chase and were able to stop Miller from driving any further.

The victim then proceeded to the Eunice Police Department for his safety, Gibson said.

Miller has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated criminal damage to property.

Gibson said investigators are filing the attempted murder charge.

“I believe that shooting into a vehicle that is occupied, justifies an attempted murder charge. Our investigators will be adding these charges today” Gibson said.
