Dateline: South Salt Lake City, where one might not expect gunplay on I-15. But add flying birds to the equation and trouble quickly brews.

Early Friday -- about 40 minutes after midnight -- a 25-year-old dude was waiting for a light to change when a woman in a car pulled up alongside.

Eye contact was made. He says she tried to speed past his car, hit some traffic cones and yelled something at the man.

He flipped her the bird.

The Deseret Sun picks up the story:
That's when she apparently fired four shots at the driver's side of the man's car. One of the bullets hit the tip of the man's middle finger on his right hand, severing it. His index finger also was injured, but not as seriously.
Wowza. The injured bird-flipper tried to follow the woman (why, we're not sure, given that she'd just shot off his middle finger) but soon decided he needed to go to the hospital, and did.

Turns out the woman was driving a stolen car. She's described as being in her early 20s, with long, dark, curly hair, a white tank top and boxer shorts. Don't piss her off.
