An 85-year old Florida man opened fire on another driver during a road rage incident, allegedly striking his car several time.
According to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, the victim was driving home from work when he looked in his rear view mirror and noticed a man, later identified as Christino Aquino, in a white Mazda CX-7 flashing his high-beam. Aquino then followed the man back to his neighborhood, which is when the latter called 911.
While talking to police dispatch, he stated that Aquino had on him something that looked like a gun, “wrapped in a white rag or a plastic bag”. Afterwards, while attempting to get his license plate, the latter began shooting – and you can clearly hear it as well as see the muzzle flash in the video below.
After managing to get away, the man met up with deputies who received a copy of his dashboard camera recording, which led to Aquino’s arrest at his home, where authorities also found the white CX-7, as reported by Click Orlando.
Deputies also stated that Aquino was accompanied by a woman at the time of the incident, who claimed that the 85-year old was following the victim in order to “see what he wanted.” She then said that while she did see him hold the gun, she didn’t know if he actually fired it.
Aquino was arrested on one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and was taken to the Marion County Jail, and was subsequently released after posting bond.
