Trooper Makes Road Rage Arrest
On the tip from a *FHP caller, the Tampa Bay Regional Communications Center issued a BOLO for a reckless driver on Interstate 4 in Hillsborough County. The driver was reported to be chasing another motorist who had swerved to avoid the aggressive driver a few moments earlier, and was making a hand motion indicative of firing a gun. Tampa Trooper Christian D. Pimentel responded to the area and stopped the vehicle.
Trooper Pimentel arrested the violator for Habitual Driving While License Suspended, Operating an Unregistered Motor Vehicle, and numerous other traffic violations. The suspect was transported to the Hillsborough County Jail where he was booked and held on $2,500 bond.
