The soldier pulled his Cadillac to the grassy shoulder off Bobby Jones Expressway around 1 a.m. Sunday and aimed his M4 semiautomatic rifle at the cars speeding by.

In the seat next to him, a woman scrambled out of the car in a panic and tried to call 911 on her cellphone.

At some point in between, Richmond County sheriff’s Deputy James D. Paugh, 47, was riding his motorcycle on the highway towards the couple, heading home after his shift patrolling at the Georgia-Carolina State Fair.

When he saw the Cadillac and decided to investigate instead of going home, off-duty Paugh didn’t get a chance to push his kickstand down before the M4 went off.

Paugh didn’t get a chance to push his kickstand down before the M4 went off....his duty weapon had been discharged twice.

Peebles said Hodges may have spent time deployed in Iraq, but that information is still being confirmed.

Where on earth do they get these "journalists"?

That said, prayers for the cop and his family.
