Man faces assault charges after brandishing gun in road incident

Not all Florida arrests are obvious with a person committing illegal acts and getting caught during the course of them. There are times when circumstances arise and a person who would normally not have any contact with the police in a criminal case are in the middle of one and find themselves placed under arrest. One such circumstance is if there is a road rage incident. People can lose their tempers on the road and make mistakes that result in legal trouble. In these cases, a sound plan for a criminal defense is essential to achieving a positive outcome.

A 42-year-old man was placed under arrest in the early afternoon after he was alleged to have brandished a handgun during a road confrontation with another driver. The accident happened at around 1 p.m. when the man and the other driver were stopped and began arguing. The man who was arrested had a gun. A witness reported that the gun had been aimed at the other driver's face. After his arrest, the man said that he threatened to shoot the other driver's tire. He was charged with aggravated assault.

Regardless of the circumstances, when there is an arrest, it is imperative to have an attorney. It might sound cliché, but those who are charged with any crime must make certain that they understand this foundational element of the justice system. Even if they do make a statement, they still need to protect themselves from any tactics law enforcement and the state attorney will try to use to secure a conviction. Assault charges can result in long-term consequences such as jail or hefty fines. A defense is critical.

Since the man basically admitted to taking out the gun, it is of higher importance that he have a lawyer. Anything can happen in a criminal trial and a lawyer can assist from the beginning of the process to the end. Anyone who is arrested for any crime must remember to seek legal help immediately.
