At approximately 3:25 PM a disturbance occurred after a traffic altercation between two vehicles traveling north on Interstate 45 feeder at SH 242 in the u-turn lane near the underpass. A 30- year-old male from The Woodlands area exited his vehicle because he had struck the car in front of him. A 45-year-old male from Louisiana exited the second vehicle and started to argue with the other driver verbally. The argument then turned physical and both drivers were exchanging blows that is when the 30-year-old Cody Dawson pulled a knife and stabbed Jason Choat in his arm, causing a minor injury. At this time the drivers separated, and Cody had retreated away from Jason. Jason returned to his car and obtained a .380 handgun and started shooting in the direction of Cody striking his vehicle. Montgomery County District attorney’s office accepted charges against both males. Cody is charged with Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for stabbing Jason. Jason is charged with deadly conduct for firing in the direction of Cody and striking his car after the altercation and threat had passed. Jason was treated for minor injuries and released. Both subjects are booked into Montgomery County Jail. Once the threat was gone so is the self defense.
