The transcript below is from the video “Driver Shoots Through Windshield on Freeway in ‘Self-Defense’” by Inside Edition.

Inside Edition (Television’s longest-running, top-rated, and most-honored syndicated newsmagazine. #1 in News and Politics on YouTube):

A driver flies down a Florida freeway while shooting through his windshield in what he says was self-defense. Marco Mazzetta says that he was being tailgated by another driver in a Nissan, and he brake-checked the person, causing the other car to bump his truck from behind. The Nissan speeds around Mazzetta, and the driver appears to have a gun. That’s when Marco pulled his gun from his waistband and started shooting.

Reporter 1:

You’ve seen it in action movies; guys pulling out guns during car chases and shooting right through the windshield. Well, this was not something out of Hollywood. This guy says he was defending himself during a pretty intense road rage incident.

Reporter 2:

How crazy is this! A motorist zips down the floor to highway while shooting through his windshield. Shards of glass fly as his passenger freaks out.


“Don’t do that!”

Reporter 2:

The shooter, identified as Marco Mazzetta, says he was defending himself in a wild case of road rage. Moments earlier, he says he brake-checked another driver in a Nissan, he thought was tailgating him, causing the other driver to bump him from behind. The Nissan then speeds around Mazzetta’s truck.
