Actress Denise Richards and her husband, Aaron Phypers, were reportedly involved in a frightening road rage incident in Los Angeles on Monday, November 14. 

Phypers was driving the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star to Popsicle Studio in L.A. and had an issue finding the studio’s exact location, according to TMZ. As a result, a male driver who was behind them became agitated and started shouting at the couple while trying to get ahead of them. 

Although Phypers let the frustrated driver go in front of them, the violent driver shot at the pair’s truck, hitting the back of the driver’s side of the vehicle, the outlet reported. 

Following the incident, Richards spoke out while clapping back at a troll who wished her harm during the alleged altercation.
