Suspected NM speed van shooter arrested

SWAT team surrounded doctor's office to find a patient believed to have shot at a speed SUV while wearing a nightshirt

ALBUQUERQUE — It was just another Friday at the office for Santa Fe cholesterol specialist Dr. James D. Mickle Jr. — at least until the SWAT team showed up.

"I come out with my hands up and I'm saying, 'There's nothing in there, maybe an X-ray view box,' " joked Mickle with the Journal.

But police weren't looking for Mickle — they were after his patient, Scott Powell, who they believe is the guy in a nightshirt who became an Internet sensation through a video of him firing about five rounds into a speed enforcement van on April 11.
