TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Authorities say a University of South Florida football player who was shot during a road rage incident has been charged with pointing a gun at the shooter and his family.

A Tampa police news release says 22-year-old Hassan Childs was charged Monday with three counts of aggravated assault and one count of misdemeanor marijuana possession. He was arrested at a local hospital, where he remains in stable condition.

The release says Childs had been tailgating Jovanni Jimenez about a mile from the USF campus on Saturday night. Jimenez, who was with his wife and 3-year-old son, told police he pulled over to let the other car pass, but Childs pulled up beside him and pointed a gun at him. Jimenez said he drew his own gun and fired three times.

The blows have landed in the state's biggest cities as well as towns surrounding its flagship university, and from the mountains to the coast.
