A woman spent the night in jail after her husband told police she took him on a wild ride that included gunfire.

Police say Elizabeth Jackson is accused of driving recklessly at speeds over 80 miles an hour Tuesday night when her husband had to grab the wheel and force her to stop on the side of the road.

William Jackson said he then got out of the car and that's when his wife fired a shot through the passenger window with a 9mm handgun.

Deputies say Elizabeth Jackson was still in the driver's seat when they got there.  They say she failed a field sobriety test and was under the influence of drugs.

She's charged with DUI and wanton endangerment.
