    Deputy on motorcycle tracks down road-rage gunman in Deerfield

    There was a heated discussion on a motorcycle board I frequent about the need to carry while riding a motorcycle.

    Even when he's out of uniform, Joe Diskin's chasing down suspected bad guys.

    The veteran Broward sheriff's deputy was out for a late-night motorcycle ride in Deerfield Beach on Monday when he says he saw the driver next to him shoot a man standing in a hotel parking lot.

    Authorities say the suspect, Michael Noshay, 58, sped past a red light at the intersection of Hillsboro Boulevard and State Road A1A and fled the scene.

    "The victim fell over and the other guy just tried to get away. I couldn't believe it," said Diskin, 41.

    Even though he was off-duty and lacked a gun, the Sheriff's Office sergeant gave chase.

    He followed the suspect's silver Corvette west down Hillsboro Boulevard at a safe distance, dialing 911 as he tried to balance his motorcycle.

    Deputies stopped Noshay minutes later at that road's intersection with Dixie Highway. He was charged with one count of attempted murder, driving with a suspended license and possession of an open container in a motor vehicle.

    Police found two handguns and an open vodka bottle inside his car, a police report said.

    The victim — later identified as Abel Diaz, 20 — told officers that Noshay had been tailgating him through traffic. Diaz pulled into a Comfort Inn's parking lot to lose Noshay, but the suspect kept yelling at him, authorities said.

    Diaz got out of his car to yell back and that's when Noshay allegedly shot at him and missed, before firing another round at his leg.

    Diaz was taken to North Broward Medical Center in Deerfield Beach for nonlife-threatening injuries. He could not be reached for comment.

    "That guy would've gotten away if the dispatchers and other officers hadn't worked so quickly," Diskin said. "It just goes to show the dangers of road rage."

    Diskin was at shooting in 1992 at the same intersection where authorities arrested Noshay. A man shot and killed one of two men who jumped on his truck and tried to rob him.

    Staff Researchers Barbara Hijek and William Lucey contributed to this report.

    Alcohol + gun + MORON = road rage

    My thanks to the off duty deputy for caring.....

    Deputy probably won't leave home without a gun again.

    I never understood an officer not carrying off duty. They see a lot more of the crime than we do, and they still choose to go out unarmed.

    I have 3 friends who are LEO and none of them carry off-duty, at least around me. I feel like a tackleberry when around them.

    And yet, he did what was right. Kudos to him.

    Now, 't is high time he got to a gun shop.

    Most Boston Police officers that I know do not carry off duty, and a lot don't even wear vests ON duty.......

    Good Lord!
    In 18 years as a lawman the only time I REALLY needed that handgun was off duty carrying concealed!
    Unreal!

    Agreed, it makes little if any sense.

    Same similar to pulling into parking lots in an attempt to "lose" a following/chasing angry driver and/or getting out of ones car to "yell back" at persons who clearly are acting crazy and irrational who just might choose to do anything including shoot you.
