A man is accused of using a slingshot to shatter a driver's side window, during a Phoenix road rage incident. 

Phoenix police report that on June 27 about 2:30 a.m., they were called the area of 35th Avenue and Camelback Road for a road rage incident. 

Police contacted the victim and found his driver's side window shattered. They also reportedly found a "gumball sized metal ball" that caused the damage in the vehicle. 

Police located and stopped the suspect's vehicle near 19th and Glendale avenues. There they interviewed the driver, 26-year-old Ba Oo.

Oo reportedly admitted to being in a road rage incident, accusing the other man of driving recklessly and stopped directly in front of him. 

Oo also allegedly admitted shooting at the victim’s car with his slingshot. 

Police say they found a wooden slingshot in the suspect's vehicle, along with some crystal methamphetamines. 

Police estimated the damage to the victim’s car at about $600.

Oo has been charged with drive-by shooting and aggravated assault.
