A man from Chicago was arrested after police say he fired a gun from the window of his vehicle while traveling on the Indiana Toll Road.
It happened around 3 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 22, at the 2.5 mile-marker.
The driver, Julio H. Miramontes, was traveling westbound while firing the gun. An Indiana State Police trooper pulled behind the vehicle and initiated a traffic stop.
All the occupants were taken into custody and a 9mm Sig P365 was recovered.
Miramontes was taken to the Lake County Jail on preliminary charges of criminal recklessness with a handgun.
Two passengers that were in the vehicle were not charged and were released at the scene.
The toll road was closed for approximately three hours to complete the investigation.
