WARREN COUNTY, Ohio (WXIX) - A Warren County man has been indicted on felonious assault, weapon and other charges after an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper was shot at in February.

On Feb. 13, Carl Moore Jr., 41, of Middletown, was seen by a trooper driving his 2007 Chevy truck erratically on Dixie Highway North of Manchester Road, according to OSHP.

While the trooper was behind the pickup truck, Moore allegedly fired a round at the trooper’s car.

OSHP said the trooper initiated a traffic stop once backup arrived. Moore was then arrested for operating a vehicle while impaired. Troopers say that during the arrest, they saw a loaded handgun inside the truck.

No shots were fired by any troopers, and no troopers were injured.

Investigators say there were two shells casings found on the driver’s side of the truck. They explained that Moore fired a shot at another driver after an altercation at a bar before firing a round at the trooper.

Aside from the numerous weapon charges, Moore was also indicted for operating a vehicle while under the influence, according to court records.
