LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) -- Police say an unemployed postal worker
went on a 5-mile shooting rampage in central Florida, injuring two
people.

According to the Polk County Sheriff's Office, 51-year-old Robin
Parks of Auburndale was driving east on U.S. 92 early Saturday when
he started shooting out of his car.

Deputies say a 17-year-old boy riding home with his parents and
a 30-year-old woman driving alongside Parks were struck.

Parks reportedly told deputies that he had gotten into a
confrontation at a bar and was shooting to protect himself.

Sheriff Grady Judd says Parks had a blood-alcohol level of 0.22,
above the legal limit of 0.08.

Parks is charged with five counts of attempted first-degree
murder and battery using a deadly weapon. He was ordered held
without bond Sunday.
