Down the road aways the driver saw a hand poking out from under a tarp with a coffee can and pouring liquid out onto the highway. He stopped a few feet from there and with a gun pulled out ordered whoever was under the tarp to show themselves. He stated he had a gun and wasn't afraid to use it so they better show there hands and keep them up where he could see them.
