Mariah Carey Made Him Do It?

A man who threw a bottle at another motorist who called him a derogatory name for blaring Mariah Carey music while stopped for a red light in North Naples was arrested on felony charges over the weekend, deputies said.

Zachary Alan Schreiber, 21, 5750 Painted Leaf Lane, Golden Gate, was charged with shooting a missile into a vehicle and criminal mischief.

Arrest reports say Schreiber was a passenger in a silver Ford Mustang convertible that was playing Mariah Carey music loudly while stopped at a red light at Pine Ridge and Airport-Pulling roads around 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

A black Honda pulled up next to them and the passenger, William H. Greenman, 22, yelled at Schreiber, calling him a derogatory name for listening to Mariah Carey, reports said.

Schreiber and Greenman exchanged profanities as both cars continued west on Pine Ridge, reports said.. While stopped at a red light at the intersection of Pine Ridge and Goodlette-Frank Road, the argument escalated and Schreiber threw a beer bottle at Greenman, reports said.

Greenman ducked, but the bottle struck the driver of the Honda, Christine Bec, 21, on the right side of her head, reports said. She was not injured, reports said.
