A 63 year-old Boca Raton man is facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly ramming his car into the car of another during a road rage incident.
According to police reports, the incident started on the road when the accused believed that the alleged victim had aggressively cut him off.
According to police, the accused began to chase the alleged victim. At one point, the alleged victim reports that he was punched in the face by the accused and nearly struck with an aluminum baseball bat.
The incident reportedly culminated in a hotel parking lot where the accused is said to have rammed the alleged victim's car with his own car.
The accused was contacted by law enforcement and arrested.
Aggravated assault without the use of a firearm is a third-degree felony punishable by up to 5 years in state prison. Without the use of a firearm or without the victim being a police officer, there is no mandatory minimum sentence. Penalties can range from Pretrial Intervention up to prison.
Aggravated assault is a very serious crime. If you are not a U.S. citizen and you are convicted or plead guilty or no contest to this charge, you can be deported even if adjudication is withheld.
