Nickelson says when N.L. started driving down the road towards him, she swerved towards him, so he pulled his handgun from his right pocket and fired two rounds into the rear driver's side of her Jeep.

Police say N.L. and three other witnesses told them that Nickelson shot two rounds into N.L.'s Jeep while she was driving away.

Police say there were two holes consistent with bullet holes in the rear driver's side of N.L.'s Jeep.

Nickelson was arrested and booked into the Laramie County Detention Center on two counts of aggravated assault, a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

Nickelson is scheduled to make his initial appearance in front of Laramie County Circuit Court Judge Antoinette Williams at 9:45 a.m. tomorrow, April 23.
