Peak 7 road rage shooting sends local man to jail 

A 28-year-old Summit County man will serve a week in jail for a violent bout of road rage last September. 

Tucker Harness has pleaded guilty to felony menacing and misdemeanor reckless endangerment, according to Summit County courts. He fired a gun at another car on Peak 7 in Breckenridge. The bullet barely missed the other driver. 

Here is what happened: Three drivers in three separate vehicles accused each other of tailgating and aggressive driving between Frisco and Peak 7. 

All three ended up on the dirt roads of Peak 7, where Harness pulled up to one other vehicle and fired a single shot at the door.  

Harness was arrested. The driver he fired at was ticketed for reckless driving. A third driver, a 17-year-old girl, was not cited. 

Harness was also given two years probation and 50 hours of community service, plus a driving class with Colorado State Patrol. He must forfeit the handgun he used in that incident. 

For a second straight year state patrol says road rage is the top complaint in Colorado. The state patrol hotline took 30,000 calls from drivers in 2023. More than half reported aggressive driving.
