Metro Police investigated reports of a reckless driver near Walter Johnson Junior High School. According to witnesses, an orange Mustang was in a school zone right by the middle school when the driver of the car started started trying to hit someone and was spinning out of control.

The Mustang hit other vehicles, went up on the sidewalk even taking out a traffic sign.

On a video captured by witness Michael Perez, car horns can be heard blowing as children dodged the driver.  

"I heard like a crash, boom, then I heard the horn of the car,” witness Elijah Voight said. "I was like, this guy crazy,"

An enraged driver targeted a woman, but other vehicles become collateral damage with other people, possible victims, as a man turned his mustang into a weapon that sent kids running.

A few parents and one man, who wants to stay anonymous, knew he had to help with the tense situation.

"I saw the mustang doing circles around that van, it had already smacked the other car, then it did another loop around and shop up on the grass,” the bystander said.

The driver was arrested and faces two attempted murder charges. He is police custody at the Clark County Detention Center and Metro tells 8 News Now that more charges are likely coming.

Investigators also say his aggressive, out of control behavior point to the likelihood the suspect was under the influence of a substance.

No one was injured.
