The victim, a passenger in a white Chevy Silverado, was stabbed in the leg after two trucks engaged in an altercation.

Police say Paul, the owner and driver of a grey Ford pickup truck, started to pass stopped traffic on the right shoulder when the driver of the Silverado entered the shoulder and blocked the path of the pickup truck. 

Paul allegedly got out of his truck and ordered the victim to get out of the Silverado. When the victim refused, Paul opened the door and tried to grab the victim who turned his legs towards Paul in an attempt to defend himself. Then, Paul pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim in the leg before fleeing the scene. 

Using a portion of the license plate and a description of the suspect and the vehicle, police were able to identify and arrest Paul. 

Paul was charged with attempted second-degree murder, first and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, possession of a dangerous weapon with intent to injure, concealing a dangerous weapon and disturbing the peace.
