A basketball player from a Florida university will face a different type of court after being arrested early Friday accused of shooting at a car on the interstate.
According to The Daytona Beach News-Journal, Stetson University guard Grand Merritt Lozoya, 21, is charged with shooting into an occupied vehicle and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Lozoya was reportedly in a Mercedes-Benz with two other teammates when Volusia County Sheriff’s deputies caught up with the car after receiving a report that “someone in a dark-colored Mercedes was shooting at him somewhere in Lake Mary,” News 6 Orlando reported.
A police report obtained by the News-Journal stated that Lozoya’s reasoning for firing at the car was because its driver was driving recklessly.
The three players reportedly have been suspended from all athletic activities at Stetson.
