Police were able to find the driver of a blue Chevy Trailblazer charged with firing two shots at another driver during a road rage attack late Friday night because of his personalized license plate BIGILN.

On Sunday, police charged Douglas Freeman, 65, with first-degree terroristic threatening after he allegedly cut off another vehicle on the H-1 freeway about 10 p.m. Friday and then fired two shots at the car. The bullets struck the vehicle, but the 23-year-old driver was unharmed.

Freeman also faces charges of reckless endangerment and a firearms violation.

Freeman appeared today in Honolulu District Court and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Wednesday.

Freeman was being held in lieu of $50,000 bail. He was initially arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder.
