A watermelon plummeted towards his windshield as he was driving down the road.
The watermelon caved in his windshield just as he got on I-30 in downtown Little Rock.
He's using his own personal experience in finding out who did it.
Immediately when it happened, Michael Fuller's experiences in the Army National Guard and as a State Trooper kicked in.
He hopes he can figure out who put him in a situation that he said, could have taken his life.
It was 9:30 Thursday evening (6/7), when Fuller, got on the busy I-30 on ramp near Cumberland and 2nd Street, cruising about. 40 miles an hour.
"As I was turning the radio, the windshield exploded," Fuller said.
Pictures of Fuller's windshield, or at least what's left of it, give an idea of the impact.
He immediately got out trying to figure out what happened.
"I knew somebody had thrown something at it."
He thought the object came from a balcony of the nearby building.
When he got out of the car, he was shocked to discover it was a watermelon. Saturday (6/9), pieces of it still lay on the road. But there were only small chunks here and there.
"I thought based on that... it's not a full watermelon. And thank goodness because it would have come through the windshield then. It would have fully penetrated."
When Fuller saw KARK's story Friday (6/8) about someone breaking out windows he thought he had a match.
"So then I heard on your story that this man was vandalizing business windows on Third Street," he said. "There's no reason the two couldn't be connected."
Little Rock Police said they could be connected but, there's no way to prove it unless someone saw the person with the watermelon.
Fuller's hoping someone saw something, or a random security camera caught it.
"I am on a mission to find who did this because he needs to know that it's fatal... potentially fatal."
It's just one more ways Fuller has been brought close to death.
"One of a number of things I've almost lost my life doing."
Fuller has served three terms of duty in Iraq.
He also has a private investigator license. He doesn't want to file a civil suit but hopes the court system will hand down the proper consequences.
