On Feb. 17, 2011, Windom was on the Borman Expressway in Lake Station, Ind., and according to prosecutors, he pulled up behind a car carrying Robert Lyons and Brenda Driver, and their 2-month-old son.

He repeatedly flashed his brights in his silver Dodge Charger, and when the car didn’t pull over, he pulled up next to it and opened fire with a handgun, shooting out windows and leaving bullet holes in the interior, prosecutors say. He shot out windows and left bullet holes in the interior.

Nobody in the car was hit.

Lyons’ car had five to six bullet holes, broken windows and bullet holes inside the passenger area.

Lyons told CBS 2’s Pamela Jones last year that he remembered hearing the gunfire while he was driving.

“Just fireworks — I mean just pop, pop,” Lyons said.”And then when it started hitting the car you could hear it pinging against the metal.”

Two days after the expressway shooting, Windom allegedly got into an argument with Deandre Wilson in the 4300 block of West 23rd Avenue in Gary, and killed him.

Windom has pleaded not guilty in that case.

Lake County, Ind., Superior Court Judge Thomas Stefaniak Jr., scheduled a May 9 sentencing hearing in the road rage case. The attempted battery counts are punishable by a sentence of two to eight years, and the criminal recklessness charges are punishable by a maximum three-year sentence.

    This mutt needs to be locked up just on his name alone. Let’s see what a tough guy he is in jail. They’re real tough when on the street, but from the time they are arrested and take their mug shots to their stay in jail, their true colors come out. They just cry for their momma and proclaim their innocence.
