Driver faces charges after traffic attack

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        SHARONVILLE — An apparent road-rage incident turned into gunfire Saturday afternoon, with a man facing an attempted murder charge after firing several shots at another vehicle, Sharonville police said.

        No one was injured.

        Billy Dixson, 26, was driving on Chesterdale Road at 5:20 p.m. when he pulled ahead of another vehicle and fired a semi-automatic handgun, striking the vehicle several times, police said.

        He and his passenger, Jodie Andrews, 27, then fled to the Hunter's Glenn apartment complex in Springdale, where they barricaded themselves in an apartment and held police at bay for three hours before surrendering, police said.

        Mr. Dixson is being held at the Hamilton County jail. Ms. Andrews was released with possible charges pending, police said.
