NEW INFO: Road Rage Suspects Both In Courtroom

More Video...

A husband and wife, accused in a road rage case that was caught on video, both showed up at the Carteret County courthouse this morning.

Bradley Turner of La Grange went before a judge for his first appearance. He was released on a $37,500 bond on Monday after turning himself in at the Lenoir County Sheriff's Office.

Turner, and his wife Christy, are facing numerous charges in Carteret County where the road rage ended near Newport.

Much of it was caught on a cell phone camera by a passenger in the back seat of the pickup truck that Turner said ran him off the road. In the video, lawmen say Turner walked up to the driver and a fight quickly began.

Deputies say the video shows Christy Turner getting out of their vehicle with a handgun at which time the fight ends. She handed the handgun to her husband, who then is seen pointing it at the other men.

Deputies say what's not seen on the video is the husband firing several rounds into the pickup truck as he left.

Turner's attorney had no objections to several modifications to his bond. Those included no contact with the victims, their family or witnesses. The man also can't be in possession of a firearm away from his home.

Bradley Turner is charged with discharging a weapon into property, two counts of assault by pointing a gun, going armed to the terror of the people, injury to personal property, and assault.

His wife is charged with two counts of assault by pointing a gun and has her first appearance May 1st.

Deputies say a four-year-old girl was in the backseat of Turner's vehicle during the assault and District Attorney Scott Thomas says child protective services in Lenoir County has been contacted.

When leaving the courthouse on Wednesday, Turner declined to speak with WITN about the case.

The Carteret County Sheriff's Office released video of the couple, hoping that someone would recognize them. Sources tell us shortly after the video aired at noon lawmen received multiple phone calls.

The video captures the moments right before deputies say shots were fired into the pickup truck. It shows a man getting out of the SUV and asking the other driver why he tried to run him off the road. The man then punched the driver and the fight spilled outside with a passenger in the pickup helping his friend. The fight continued until the woman in the SUV came out with a handgun, and gave it to the SUV driver.

No one was hurt by the gunfire.
