A Sherman man is in jail after a drive-by shooting over the weekend.

The man on the receiving end of those bullets says it started when he asked the shooter to slow down.

Chase Crowley says he, his wife, 10 year-old son and two friends were in his driveway outside their home near Pottsboro getting ready to move a camper.

That's when two cars came speeding down the street, and he yelled for them to slow down.

Next thing he knew, gun shots were fired.

"I don't regret telling them to slow down. I don't feel like their reaction was worth what it came to," Crowley said.

It came to a bullet-ridden truck and a man in jail facing four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

"It was a crazy deal. All over wanting him to slow down, I feel like the county should put speed bumps in, you know," Crowley said.

He was in his drive-way Saturday night when he watched a truck speeding down the street and a car following behind.

His 10-year-old son was sitting on the porch.

"I just told them I said slow down. I threw my hands up I said slow down," Crowley said. "And they went down and came back and opened fire on us."

They were standing near a truck parked out front, which is where most of the bullets hit. They found around six or seven holes.

The truck belongs to a man who was coming to pick up the RV.

"None of us got hit, I'm thankful for it. My son didn't get it, I'm thankful for it. But now I feel like I have to ride around armed everywhere I go," Crowley said.

He said after the shots were fired, the first truck sped off.

On Sunday, deputies arrested Sydney McIntosh, 28, the man in the backseat of the other car who they identified as the shooter.

He faces four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, but Crowley wishes he faced more, since there were five people outside, including his child.

"Any stray bullet, anything could have happened, anything could have happened. My kid could have died, you know," he said.

McIntosh's bond is set at $400,000.

Court records show he served prison time for aggravated robbery for being part of a group who beat and robbed two men at Fairview Park in Sherman in 2011.
