A trip to a Vero Beach Taco Bell recently came to an end with a charge of aggravated assault against one local man. On February 6, 2021, a woman called the police and reported that while she was driving on State Road 60, a man in a vehicle crossed over three lanes and pulled closely in front of her moving car, forcing her onto the curb. Shortly after, the woman reported that the man swerved at her again before he sped off. In response, the woman followed the man to get his tag number. At this point, the woman reported that the man slowed his car to match her speed and confronted the woman by pulling a gun and pointing it at her and her grandson. When police responded to the scene and caught up with the man, he told the police that he did not intentionally force the woman onto the curb; he claimed to have erroneously miscalculated where the woman was turning and that he did not intend to get so close to her. Further, the man told police that he only showed the woman his pistol after he heard screams coming at him but asserts that he never pointed his pistol at the woman. Upon catching up with the man, the police confiscated the man’s pistol and charged him with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Now, out on bail, the man would be wise to seek the counsel of an experienced Vero Beach aggravated assault attorney.
