Ronald Gasser, the man who admittedly killed former USC and NFL player Joe McKnight during a road rage incident, isn’t the only one in his family with a history of driving violations.

Court records obtained by the DailyMail reveal that Gasser’s father, Robert Gasser Sr., has at least 10 driving tickets including illegally cutting across private property, parking on private property and ignoring a red light.

It was also revealed earlier that the younger Gasser has a history of road rage prior to the McKnight killing, which included assaulting another motorist after a disagreement. Between the two men, they have at least 13 driving offenses dating back decades.

Ronald Gasser did not receive any charges after killing Joe McKnight. He admitted to police that he was the gunman. A witness, who did not give her name, claims Gasser and McKnight were arguing, however McKnight was attempting to apologize. That’s when Gasser pulled a gun on McKnight and shot him more than once.

Below are all of Ronald Gasser Sr’s prior driving offenses:

- Three speeding tickets over a two decade span
- Ticketed for an having expired license plate and
- Ticketed for no brake tag
- Caught illegally cutting across private property to avoid a traffic light
