Road Rage Incident Leads to Driver Threatening Victims with Sword

BROOKSVILLE – What started out as a simple fender bender in the area of US-41 and Croom Road, quickly turned violent after one of the drivers produced a sword and threatened to kill the other occupants.

According to Brooksville Police, around 12:30 this afternoon Police were dispatched to a possible road rage incident occurring on US-41.

Upon their arrival, Police interviewed the occupants of a white Lexus, Julian and Adrian Rivera, who claimed that they were following the suspect, 43-year-old Daniel Franklin Seymour northbound on US-41. That’s when he victims say Seymour began brake checking them and making obscene gestures from his window. The behavior continued, say officials, until the victims attempted to pass Seymour but that’s when Seymour sped up and struck the victim’s right rear fender. As the victims tried to pull over, Seymour rammed the rear of the Lexus and pulled over next to them. Suddenly, Seymour exited his vehicle and approached the brothers in an aggressive manner. When the victims told the suspect to “back off,” Seymour retrieved a 25” sword from this backseat and threatened to “kill them both.”

Seymour had already placed the sword back in the trunk of his car before police arrived on scene.

After the investigation, police discovered the sword and arrested Seymour for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Driving Recklessly/Aggressively. Seymour is currently behind bars held on a $24,500 bond.
