Congratulations to Troopers Jose Hernandez, Velma Juarez, Samuel Johnson, and Gifford Ramsey for being selected as Troopers of the Month for June 2005, for their actions in apprehending an aggressive driver who committed aggravated assault against a fellow motorist.

On Friday, June 24, 2005, a BOLO was given of an aggravated assault that occurred on State Road 874. The victim of the assault advised FHP dispatch that a white male driving a blue BMW pointed a pistol at him in a threatening manner. The incident started when the white male subject tried to cut in front of the victim. The victim moved his vehicle not allowing the subject to get in front. This aggravated the subject. The subject then started to tailgate the victim in an aggressive manner. The subject managed to position his vehicle alongside the victim and pointed a silver pistol at him. This is when the victim, fearing for his life, called FHP.

Duty Officer Gail Nees received the call and kept the victim on the phone while she alerted the troopers in the area of the situation. Duty Officer Nees is to be commended for her calm and professional handling of the situation. When the subject exited onto State Road 976, Troopers Hernandez, Juarez, Johnson, and Ramsey were waiting. The troopers conducted a felony traffic stop. As a result of the vigilance and quick professional actions of the FHP team, the subject was arrested, his weapon seized, and he was taken into custody without further incident. Good job!
