48-year-old John Barrs is scheduled to appear in court later this month after he went on a road rage rampage last year on I-24. Troopers say in August of 2022, Barrs was driving a black GMC Denali in the left lane and attempted to merge due to an upcoming lane closure for construction when he sideswiped a black Mercedes Benz. Footage from a TDOT truck dash camera shows him impacting the other vehicle and driving alongside the Mercedes until he purposely struck the victim’s car a second time. He caused $12,000 in damage and was charged with felony vandalism and reckless endangerment. He is set to appear in court on April 27.
