A man from Texas who authorities claim has a 'dim' opinion of women was arrested this week. The man was accused of firing shots at women drivers because he doesn't believe they should be allowed to drive, officials said.
29-year-old Nicholas D’Agostino is linked to at least three road rage shootings, all of which have reportedly occurred in the Houston suburb of Katy, reports Fox News.
D’Agostino appeared before a judge Thursday night on charges laid against him for shooting two women in their cars in two separate instances.

In one case, which took place in March this year, a woman driver heard a loud noise while driving out of a gas station's parking lot. She felt a sudden and severe pain in her right arm and soon realized that she had been shot, it was reported. The police report said that D’Agostino will also be facing a new charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in connection with that case.
As per reports, he has already spent six weeks in jail for a July attack on a 39-year-old woman, the station said in a statement. As a matter of fact, he was released on bond for three days before his arrest on Thursday.
D’Agostino is currently being held in custody and his bond is set at $250,000, as per reports. The report also said that he has been recommended to wear a GPS monitor on his leg and adhere to an 8 am to 8 pm curfew.
