According to PEOPLE, Denise Richards and her husband Aaron Phypers were driving to Popsicle Studio in Los Angeles. Richards is working on an upcoming project there, but they ended up delayed in getting to the shoot. Apparently, someone opened fire on their vehicle in a case of road rage.
Aaron was driving Richards to a movie shoot in their Ford F-150 Shelby pick-up truck. He noticed that a gold and maroon van was following them. According to the source, Aaron realized the vehicle was following them and started to get close and the driver seemed angry. The two got scared and then the van pulled around and came up to the driver’s side window.
The man in the van claimed that Aaron had cut him off and was yelling at him. When Aaron tried to apologize, the man kept yelling. This caused Aaron to take off and he kept going until he reached the studio lot. That is when they realized the man had shot at them and hit the back of the truck. The man in the van then took off and left, and security came out and secured the scene.
