Aggressive Driver Arrested for Aggravated Assault


Cpl. Frank Burke Trooper Robert RayAn aggressive driver was arrested after pointing a very real looking model gun at a motorist on the Howard Franklin Bridge over Tampa Bay.

After being tailgated by an aggressive driver, a motorist dialed *FHP when a gun was pointed at him. FHP Communication Officers remained on the line with the caller until FHP Corporal Frank Burke (left) and backup Trooper Robert Ray (right) were able to locate the suspect’s vehicle in Pinellas County.

A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed a replica of a 9mm firearm. The suspect was taken into custody and charged with a felony.

Good job by all involved in taking another criminal off of Florida’s highways.
