In Yet Another Insane Road Rage Incident, Doctor Opens Fire on Driver in Traffic (Video)

With all the recent incidents of highway insanity, you have to wonder what’s happening on the roads today. Crazy women running police barricades, road rage biker gangs attacking SUV drivers in New York, and now THIS? When did America become a prequel to Mad Max? We could make a pretty good guess, and it involves Ron Paul and his scion group of masturbatory anarchists.


The incident started when David Kollar saw a black car swerving and driving erratically on I-75 in Indiana. The car’s bike rack was blocking the license plate, so Kollar whipped out his cell phone to record its behavior, and get a picture of the driver. When Kollar accelerated forward to get the driver’s face, his phone recorded a little more than a nice profile pic.

The driver of the other car, a 51-year-old doctor by the name of Perrin Dobyns, rolled down the passenger-side window, picked up what appears to be a 9 mm pistol and pointed it at Kollar. You can see the smoke trail leave the barrel as he fires at Kollar. Miraculously, Dobyns appears to have missed, and Kollar got away with little more than shaken up from the encounter.

Dobyns though, was probably a little more than shaken up when the police walked in to handcuff him in his office…at Indiana’s Branchville Correctional Facility. That’s right…Dr. Dobyns was a doctor AT A PRISON. Not that he should have been, given his previous history.

See, Indiana’s prison officials hired Dobyns after he had already lost his medical license in North Carolina. The doctor had a contract with the Medical Board that prohibted him from using any controlled substance. In October of 2008, Dobyns prescribed Elavil and “a controlled substanceto a family member — a big no-no. A month later, he urine-tested positive for pot. Two weeks later, he tested positive for oxycodone and oxymorphone. A month later, he filled his family member’s prescriptions for Elavil and the “controlled substance” (reportedly oxycontin).

So…wow. Seems almost like he should have gone to jail after all that. But in Indiana, they apparently don’t throw you in prison for slinging oxies without giving you a paycheck.

Dobyns was released from jail after pleading not guilty to first degree wanton endangerment, and paid $2,500 in bail to go home.

That’s right. $2,500 in bail, for what was anywhere else would have been classified as attempted murder and discharge of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

If he’d have been a poor, black woman in Florida, he’d be looking at $100,000 bail and 20 years in prison. Minimum. Guess it pays to be a white, pill-slinging doctor in Indiana’s prison system these days.

You know, being a Floridian, I want to look at incidents like this — this one, the biker gang and the D.C. Gatecrasher — chuckle deviously and say “awesome.” Down here, no God-awful act of violence or anarchy is that big of a deal if nobody but the perpetrator died. And no act of violence, no sign of social devolution, would be shocking. But I also realize that that, in itself, is a direct result of the fundamentally screwed up perspective you wind up with when you spend enough time in a place like Florida. A corporate-owned, billionaire controlled, religiously manipulated cash-farm…Teabagger paradise.

Here, we’re considering a law to allow people to fire warning shots rather than call the police. Here, you can stalk and kill three people in cold blood, and expect to get away with it…you can expect your neighbors to DEFEND you. Here, anarchy and violence is so normalized, such a part of the culture, that the only way to know when something truly is screwed up is when YOU find it funny. When it makes complete sense to YOU. When, yeah…you could see that happening. As the world makes more sense to Floridians, so goes it to anarchistic Hell.

And nothing about any of this doesn’t make sense to me.

    I have to say… this reads like a hate group. What a shame

    What do you expect? Indiana’s former governor Mitch Daniels is another one in the Rick Snyder-Rick Scott-Scott Walker-Bob McDonnell-Nikki Haley mold, stamped out in mass production by the Koch Brothers and the GOP manufactured Tea Party conservaNazis; His replacement Mike Pence is probably not any better

    Why would gun-toting highway shooter Doctor Perryn Dobins who lost his license in North Carolina NOT be able to get a job in Indiana’s Correctional System. “Don’t worry about it, Doc, I’ll just call Mitch Daniels and he’ll hire you sight unseen”

    I feel pity for the inmates in Indiana, they’ll probably die from this quack’s medical incompetence just to save the price of their room and board

    What I want to know is if he legally purchased that firearm even with his record. I am guessing he did.

    I-75 does not run through Indiana at all.

      True, but the video indicates the incident happened on I-75; You can see an I-75 route marker sign near the beginning of the video. I-75 comes closes to Indiana when it passes through Cincinnati before swinging more northeast.

      Yep…mea culpa! The only excuse I can give is that I was actually quoting from one of the listed sources; ‘Kollar said he witnessed the black car drive on the emergency lane of Interstate-75, in Richmond, next to another car.'” But, no excuses…I used to drive a truck, I’ve spent plenty of time on I-75 AND in Indiana, and I should have known to double-check when I saw “I-75″ in the source. So, yes…it was my mistake for not double-checking. I’d edit it to correct the mistake, but WordPress won’t allow it once the article is up. But my mistake…consider this a correction, and thanks for pointing it out!

        Oh, PS: I-75 DOES actually come close to the Indiana border, and there appears to be an I-75 marker in the video. The thought did occur to me that it might be near Toledo, but I didn’t double-check either way. So the article and the original source probably is correct…at least that’s how it looks from the video. Whew! saved by a technicality lol.

  • John M Davis

    There is no I-75 in Indiana! You need to correct that!

    Why was he not charged with attempted murder? If he had better aim, the other driver would be dead.

  • Mark

    My money is on him being re-hired either in IN or some other Red State, he will have have a prescription pad once again, and we’ll hear about him again as well.

    This column outlines prospectively what’s going to happen more and more often in America as the Rethuglican, No-Mind Tea Partiers who believe they own the sandbox in which they hide their bullets when they go to the beach take more strength from the shining example of the foot-stomping close-minded idiots like Cruz, Boehner, Cantor and McConnell as they continue to use dishonest disingenuity in their attempts to destroy the Obama presidency, After the ACA gets over its entirely predictable 1st week of technical glitches, and 21 MILLION more Americans are getting medical care from our incredibly excellent medical industry b/c the Gov’t is FINALLY making an investment in keeping ALL Americans healthy instead of sitting idly by as the Millionaire executives of the Health Corporations get weaned off the teats of the Koch Brothers and other people who believe Gov’t can and should be about no one but the 1% at the top, the U.S. will be 2 baby steps closer to being a civilized nation. At least until the next nutbar buys a rapid fire machine gun with his Sunday paper at 7-11 and blows away another 20 people and the Rethuglican no minds yawn and say with benefits come risks….
