SAVANNAH, GA (August 7, 2020) – Savannah Police officers quickly made an arrest Aug. 6 after shots were fired in a road rage incident.
Isiah Reeder, 36, was booked into the Chatham County Detention Center on charges of aggravated assault, cruelty to children third degree, criminal damage to property second degree, possession of marijuana more than an ounce and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
According to the investigation, Reeder was driving a vehicle, which was occupied by an adult female and a young child, on Ranger Street around 9:30 a.m. when he was involved in a near-crash with another vehicle driven by an adult male. Reeder then followed the other vehicle to a construction site at Memorial Medical Center’s campus, where he got out of the vehicle, displayed a weapon in his waistband and demanded an apology from the other driver. Reeder later got back in his vehicle and appeared to be driving away but then stopped, exited his vehicle again and shot toward the other driver. He then fled the scene. There were no injuries reported, but an unoccupied vehicle was struck.
Patrol officers, as well as the Gang and K9 units, responded to the area and quickly located Reeder at a residence on 69th Street. He was taken into custody without incident. A search of the residence resulted in officers locating four loaded guns as well as 9.6 oz. of marijuana.
