Road Rage Shooting Leads to Arrest of Homosassa Man

HOMOSASSA – The Citrus County Sheriff's Office is reporting the arrest of a suspect who allegedly fired shots during a road rage incident earlier this week.

According to officials, on March 5th the victim was traveling northbound in the outside lane on US-19 when another vehicle swerved and intentionally struck the victim's vehicle. Following the crash, the victim heard what sounded like a gunshot. The victim briefly lost control of the vehicle and the suspect drove off, passing the victim on the shoulder.

During the ensuing investigation, detectives determined that 31-year-old Tyler Grimison was a possible suspect. Grimison agreed to meet with detectives in Crystal River, where he was taken into custody on charges of Shooting into an Occupied Conveyance, Discharging a Firearm in Public, and Criminal Mischief. Grimison is currently held without bond.

"We appreciate the public's assistance and the diligent work of Detective Kelly in bringing this dangerous situation to a swift resolution," said Sheriff Mike Prendergast. "Road rage incidents can escalate quickly and have tragic consequences. Our agency takes these incidents very seriously and will continue to dedicate resources to investigate and hold offenders accountable."
