MARICOPA, Ariz. -- A Maricopa man is in custody in a road-rage incident.

Maricopa police say Joseph Anthony Lee is being held on suspicion of two counts of aggravated assault and three counts of endangerment.

Police say officers responded to a report of shots fired just before midnight Saturday.

Witnesses say Yee was tailgating a car that was driven by a woman.

Her husband cut off Yee and a verbal altercation ensued.

Police say Yee reportedly pulled out a .38-caliber revolver and a passenger in the woman's car was shot in the right leg.

The victim was taken to a Phoenix hospital with a non-life threatening wound and Yee was arrested.

Police say alcohol use is considered a factor in the incident.

They didn't immediately know Monday if Yee has a lawyer yet.
