Jeff Styles statememtView
Chattanooga radio host Jeff Styles is disputing a report that he instigated a road rage incident Friday night that led to him being shot in the arm.
A statement released Sunday night by his attorney, Lee Davis, alleges that it was Nickolas Bullington, 35, who threatened Styles as the two were driving on Highway 153, not the other way around.
Police say Styles struck Bullington's window with a tomahawk-style weapon; Styles alleges that he did so out of self defense because Bullington threatened him with a firearm.
Styles, 57, is charged with aggravated assault and vandalism and is out on bond.
