HOUSTON - Finally there's a mug to match the sketch. Houston police say Dietrich Evans, 22, is the face of last month's road rage shooting on the North Freeway.

Evans appeared before a judge early Tuesday morning, where he was charged with aggravated assault. His bond was set at $250,000.

It was on March 20 when the victim, Kay Hafford, was driving along the North Freeway near Richey. Hafford told police a man in a white SUV cut her off on the freeway, and like many people do, she honked at him. That's when she says Evans pulled up next to her and fired one shot into her car.

Hafford was hit in the back of the neck, but will make a full recovery. Amazingly, she was able to give police a detailed description of Evans.

After the sketch was released, a witness called police and told them she was on the phone with Evans when it happened. A search warrant of his phone records not only confirmed the phone call, but also his exact location at the time.

Police say Hafford was able to pick Evans out of a lineup.

Now, he's locked up in the Harris County jail, where, despite all his rage, he is still just a rat in a cage.
