Armed Man Threatens to Kill Tow Truck Driver in Road Rage Incident
SPRING HILL – An armed man coupled with a bad temper led to a road rage incident Tuesday, at the intersection of Geranium Ave and Juliet Court.
According to reports, 47-year-old James T. Calleri was driving eastbound Northcliffe Blvd in his 2004 GMC Envoy. As he approached the intersection of Geranium Ave, Calleri was forced to slam on his brakes to avoid a tow truck that pulled in front of him. Rather than report the incident to authorities, Calleri chose to follow the tow truck north on Geranium until they reached the intersection of Juliet Court. That’s where Calleri pulled in front of the tow truck, slammed on his brakes, and exited his vehicle armed with a handgun. Calleri charged at the driver of the tow truck, identified as Douglas Marrow, and pointed the gun in his direction. Calleri demanded that Marrow retreat from his vehicle or he would kill him. In fear for his life, Marrow complied and fled the area on foot.
Deputies responded to the scene and placed Calleri into custody without incident.
The reports states that the victim and suspect live within a ¼ mile of each other, but it is not known if they are acquainted.
Calleri is charged with one count of aggravated assault with a firearm and is free on a $2,000 bond.
