When they drove past that night, a dark SUV began tailing them from behind. Boelter veered down an alley to try and lose them, his friends said, but someone in the SUV plugged off several rounds as they turned on Cypress Street.
Investigators later recovered five spent .45 caliber casings from the area.
Authorities learned that Woody had spent the evening drinking at Boelter’s ex-girlfriend’s house and was sitting in his SUV when Boelter passed by. Woody, who was seen at the property with a large handgun in his pocket, got upset. Surveillance video showed another man running to hop in the passenger seat before Woody sped to chase Boelter down.
A witness saw muzzle flashes pop from the back passenger side of the SUV as it pulled alongside the VW Beetle. The suspects fled after seeing the witness.
On Tuesday, police searching Woody’s home found a Springfield .45 caliber handgun, charges say. He was arrested, but declined an interview with detectives. Woody has previous convictions for domestic assault, interfering with a police officer and intent to sell marijuana.
