(Gawker) - Footage of a violent, road-rage-fueled altercation between a North Carolina couple and car full of teens surfaced online yesterday, ultimately leading to the couple's arrest.

From WITN:

The video captures the moments right before deputies say shots were fired into the pickup truck. It shows a man getting out of the SUV and asking the other driver why he tried to run him off the road. The man then punched the driver and the fight spilled outside with a passenger in the pickup helping his friend. The fight continued until the woman in the SUV came out with a handgun, and gave it to the SUV driver.

A neighboring home was also damaged by gunfire.

According to unconfirmed reports, the man had followed the teens to their home in Newport after they cut him off on Highway 70 near James City.

The man, identified as 40-year-old Bradley Turner, and his wife, identified as 30-year-old Christy Turner, turned themselves in at the Lenoir County Courthouse yesterday afternoon, and spent a short time behind bars before being released on bond.

The couple reportedly had a toddler in their car at the time of the incident.

Bradley Turner was charged with multiple crimes, including discharging a weapon into property, going armed to the terror of the people, and two counts of assault by pointing a gun.

Christy Turner was charged with two counts of assault by pointing a gun.

A date for their next court appearance has yet to be set.
