In October 2012 there were some shootings on a Detroit freeway. No one was injured or killed, thank goodness. The suspect in the case, Raulie Wayne Casteel, is on trial this week. His defense, in part, centers on paranoia he was experiencing at the time. Paranoia egged on by Jim Price and Dan Dickerson, it seems:
A Wixom man police say is the Interstate 96 corridor shooter who terrorized motorists in October 2012 testified Monday that he was prompted to randomly shoot at cars after receiving “coded messages” during Detroit Tiger baseball games . . . Casteel said one of the shootings occurred while he was listening to a Tigers baseball game on his car radio and suffered anxiety at seeing a “long line of cars” driving in his direction.
He said he recalled listening to one pre-game broadcast discussing baseball hitters “aiming at shadows” or “shooting at shadows.”
“To me it meant shooting at cars,” he said.
