HENRICO, Va. (AP) - A Chesterfield man is facing up to eight years in prison for firing at a driver along Interstate 295 who did not stop to help him when his car became disabled.

News outlets report Virginia State Police say 24-year-old John Maddox was stopped alongside the road in May when he shot at the passing vehicle. No one was injured.

Maddox entered an Alford plea Thursday to attempted malicious wounding and use of a firearm in commission of a felony in the case.

In an Alford plea, the defendant doesn’t admit guilt but acknowledges there’s enough evidence for a conviction.

Henrico prosecutor Robert J. Windle said Maddox fired at least two shots, upset that no one stopped to help.

Maddox is scheduled to be sentenced in December.
