Fouche was a passenger in a Ford Fusion driven by another woman on I-55 on Friday afternoon when they were involved in a road rage incident with a Nissan Pathfinder driven by a 31-year-old woman and occupied by a 32-year-old man, according to a probable cause statement filed by the Missouri Highway Patrol.
Fouche’s 2-year-old child was in the Fusion and there were four children inside the Pathfinder, ages 2, 3, 8, and 11.
As the Fusion passed the Pathfinder on the right, Fouche fired three shots from a handgun, the probable cause statement said. All three struck the Pathfinder: one hit the rear right tire, causing it to deflate, and two rounds hit the right front passenger door. One of those bullets went through the door and struck the 32-year-old man, according to police.
The Fusion fled the scene northbound on I-55. The driver of the Pathfinder pulled over and called 911 and the man was treated for injuries that were not life-threatening, authorities said.
Hours later, the Fusion was stopped by Creve Coeur police on Interstate 270 south of Olive Boulevard in St. Louis County. Police found the gun in the car, according to the probable cause statement, and the women were taken to highway patrol regional headquarters, where Fouche admitted to firing at the Pathfinder. Fouche was being held without bail at the Jefferson County jail.
