The Missouri State Highway Patrol says 59-year-old Sepid Majid Salem told a passenger in his car Sunday that he “had an urge” before he stopped and fired four or five shots on Interstate 44 in Pulaski County near Devil’s Elbow.

A Springfield TV station reports no one was injured but one of the shots went through a sleeper berth in a semi-trailer truck.

Salem is charged with first-degree assault, unlawful use of a weapon and property damage.

A witness notified authorities, who arrested Salem in Rolla.  Authorities found the semi at a rest area near Doolittle.  The truck had a camera and recorded the shooting.
